Nhat Tan – Vietnam’s largest cable-stayed bridge

(VOV) -The final span of the Nhat Tan Bridge, Hanoi's longest bridge (8.9km), linking the main portion of the city with the Noi Bai International Airport has been connected.

The bridge, constructed with an initial investment of VND13.6 trillion (US$639.2 million) sourced from the Japan Bank for International Cooperation (JBIC) and the Vietnamese Government’s counterpart capital, is scheduled to open to traffic in October 2014.

The bridge is 33.2 metres wide and is designed with eight lanes (four lanes in each direction) and sidewalks for pedestrians.

With its technical and architecture magnificence, the bridge is destined to become - one of Hanoi’s newest landmarks - linking the centre of the capital city to industrial zones in the north and completing the belt road No2 to shorten travel time to Noi Bai International airport.
