HCMC – Work has begun on a project aimed at raising the vertical clearance of 11 bridges in southern Vietnam, with a total investment of VND2,155 billion. Nine of the 11 bridges will be newly constructed, one will be renovated, and one will be dismantled as part of a larger project to increase the clearance of road bridges along national inland waterway routes in the southern region. The primary objective of this project is to enhance transportation infrastructure in the Mekong Delta region, making it more suitable for waterway transportation along the entire route. This development will be particularly beneficial for travel between the Mekong Delta region and HCMC, as well as the southeastern seaports. To ensure efficient waterway transportation, the vertical clearance of these bridges needs to be increased to accommodate vessels carrying three or four layers of containers.
