With a total investment capital of VND504 billion, the steel N-shape bridge is one of the six major traffic projects aimed at easing traffic congestion at the Tan Son Nhat Airport area.
The bridge has three arms, with a 367m arm connecting Hoang Minh Giam and Nguyen Thai Son streets, the other 367 section arm turning north from Hoang Minh Giam street to Nguyen Kiem street, and the final 367m turning south from Nguyen Thai Son street into Nguyen Kiem.
The construction of the flyover would help clear gridlock on the routes to Tan Son Nhat airport.
Earlier, only the first two arms of the bridge connecting Hoang Minh Giam to Nguyen Thai Son and Nguyen Kiem to Hoang Minh Giam were opened to traffic. Construction work on the final arm had fallen behind the schedule for nearly a year due to delays in land clearance.
