Nhat Tan Bridge
NHAT TAN BRIDGE PROJECT
Nhat Tan Bridge is the greatest cable-stayed bridge in Vietnam. It is also one of outstanding projects of Japanese in Vietnam with a total investment of 13.600 billion funded by ODA loans under the conditions of STEP of Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and reciprocal capital of Vietnam government.
The bridge is built across Red River, connecting the two banks of Phu Thuong Ward (Tay Ho District) and the Nam Hong intersection (Dong Anh District). It came under construction on 7th March, 2009 with the total length of nearly 9 km, including 3.75 km Nhat Tan Bridge and two roads connecting bridge approximately of 5.17 km, road width of 33.2 m with 8 lanes. The Main Bridge in this project is a unique type of bridge that requires high engineering technologies. IHI Infrastructure Systems Co., Ltd. (IIS) is in charge of the Superstructure, while Sumitomo Mitsui Construction Co., Ltd. (SMCC) is in charge of the Substructure. The two companies are global leaders in their respective industries. This project has finished in 2014 and the Inauguration Ceremony was held to celebrate Nhat Tan Bridge Open on 4th January, 2015.
Nhat Tan Bridge, a 1500m long cable-stayed bridge with multiple spans, is a very rare type of bridge in the world and one of the longest bridges in South East Asia upon completion. This bridge, the gateway to Hanoi, will also serve as symbol of Japan-Vietnam Friendship and a place of interest in generations’ memory as well.
