Pedestrian bridges linking the elevated stations of Ho Chi Minh City's inaugural metro system are being constructed in sync with the stations and their surrounding landscapes. They expect to complete all of these pedestrian bridge projects by June 2024 so that the first metro line can be put into operation in July. Ho Chi Minh City’s first metro line, which is currently 97 percent complete, will be put into commercial operation in July 2024, according to MAUR. Work on the 19.7-kilometer-long metro line started in 2012 at a total cost of VND43.7 trillion (US$1.8 billion).
