Construction of Thu Thiem Bridge begins
The groundbreaking ceremony took place this week for a US$70 million bridge in Ho Chi Minh City. The bridge will connect the downtown area to the Thu Thiem peninsula, opening the way for an eastwards expansion of the city. Thu Thiem Bridge will be 1.25km long and 28m wide. It will be the fourth bridge over the Saigon River, joining the Saigon, Binh Trieu and Binh Trieu 2 bridges.
