NDO – The northern port city of Hai Phong kick started the construction of a flyover at the Nguyen Van Linh intersection on May 14.

The flyover features seven lanes measuring 288.2 metres in length and 19 metres in width, and is built at a total investment of VND360 billion (US$16.9 million) sourced from the city’s budget.

The construction of the project is expected to be completed and opened to traffic by 2020.

The facility will be built as an important arterial part of the construction of the Ho Sen - Cau Rao 2 route, which has a total investment of VND1,405 billion (US$61.5 million).

The Ho Sen Cau Rao 2 - Nguyen Van Linh intersection project is designed to complete the city’s traffic system, creating a main road connecting the city centre with Highway No 5, Pham Van Dong Street and the city’s southern area.

It will also help to reduce heavy traffic on the Cau Dat – Lach Tray – Cau Rao route.
