HẢI PHÒNG – Tân Vũ – Lạch Huyện Bridge, set to be Southeast Asia’s longest cross-sea bridge when opened, will undergo a test run to check loading capacity on Sunday.

The 5.4km-long bridge is part of the Tân Vũ – Lạch Huyện Highway project, which connects developing areas in the east of Hải Phòng with Lạch Huyện International Port in the island district of Cát Hải and the Hà Nội – Hải Phòng Expressway.

Once the bridge becomes operational, travelling from Hải Phòng City to Cat Hai Island will take about five minutes, compared to hours on ferries.

The management board said 99.8 per cent of the work has been completed on the bridge section built by Japan-based Sumitomo Mitsui Construction Co., Ltd and Vietnamese Civil Engineering Construction Corporation No 4.

The Tân Vũ – Lạch Huyện  Highway project has a investment of almost VNĐ11.85 trillion (US$525.3 million), of which the majority was funded with Japanese official development assistance. Its construction began in May 2014 and is scheduled to finish this month.

The project is expected to form a complete transport network facilitating transportation to Lạch Huyện International Port, thereby attracting more investment to Hải Phòng. – VNS
