The bridges, including Hong Ha, new Thang Long, Tu Lien, Thuong Cat, Ngoc Hoi, Tran Hung Dao, Phu Xuyen, Van Phuc, Me So and Vĩnh Tuy Bridge 2, aim to meet the travel needs of people on both sides of the river.

The Ministry of Transport revealed this information when responding the Hanoi voters' request on building more bridges spanning the Red River.

At the meeting, which was held in Hanoi on December 24, Hanoi voters also requested the changes of technical structure and the name of Me So bridge, which connects the two districts of Thuong Tin (Hanoi) and Van Giang (Hung Yen province). 

Me So bridge is part of the Ring Road No. 4 Project which is under pre-feasibility study before being submitted to the National Assembly. The Me So bridge feasibility study include designs, investment, maintenance and aesthetics. 

According to the Hanoi Traffic Transport Construction Project Management Board, the construction of Vĩnh Tuy Bridge 2, will commence in early January 2021. It will be built with an investment capital of more than VND2.54 trillion (US$109 million) sourced from the city’s budget.

The project aims to complete the Belt Road No. 2 of the capital city and promote linkage between two banks of the river, as well as connect downtown with the city’s north and northeast. Hanoitimes
