Concerning the implementation of a number of works and projects in the city, construction of the second phase of Vinh Tuy Bridge (3.4 kilometers) began in January 2021 with a total investment of more than VND2.5 trillion.
According to the Ha Noi People’s Committee, contractors have so far completed the drilling of some concrete piles and are continuing to implement the category of abutments.
Following the completion of the project, the city will go ahead with the remaining components of Ring Road No. 2, aiming to increase travel capacity between the two sides of the Red River.
Work started on the Le Van Luong-Ring Road No. 3 tunnel project in October 2020 with a total investment of more than VND700 billion and a total length of 475 meters.
Contractors are now installing the underground electricity and water systems, expecting to complete the first phase of the project and move on to the second-phase trenching process by the end of June 2021.
To ensure the progress, contractors have divided workers into five groups working round the clock. Due for completion in April 2022, the project will contribute to easing congestion at the Ring Road No. 3-Le Van Luong intersection./.
