Thuong Cat bridge, which is 820m long and 33m wide, is a lifeline traffic project of the northwest area of Bac Tu Liem district to Dong Anh district. The 8-lane bridge is expected to contribute to the capital’s complete transportation infrastructure system, connect the central urban area with the suburban area, support travel needs, and reduce traffic congestion, contributing to promoting local socio-economic development.

The capital city will break ground on other three bridges in Q3 and Q4 this year. Of these bridges, Hong Ha and Me So lie on Ring Road 4 and are expected to create a turning point for the capital’s development.

Under the transportation development plan up to 2030 with a vision for 2050, Ha Noi will build ten more bridges including Hong Ha, new Thang Long, Tu Lien, Thuong Cat, Ngoc Hoi, Tran Hung Dao, Phu Xuyen, Van Phuc, Me So and Vinh Tuy Bridge 2.

By 2050, Ha Noi will have 18 bridges over the Hong river in a bid to meet the travel needs of people on both residential areas of the river.

Currently, the city has eight valid bridges spanning over the Red River namely Long Bien, Chuong Duong, Thanh Tri, Vinh Tuy Bridge 1, Thang Long, Nhat Tan, Vinh Thinh and Viet Tri-Ba Vi./.
