Thu Thiem 2 Bridge allows two-way traffic on six lanes, including four lanes for cars and two lanes for mixed vehicles. Only semi-trailers are not allowed to cross this bridge. The bridge tower is 111 meters high, with 56 cables designed to lean toward Thu Duc City. The bridge deck is made of reinforced concrete with a composite continuous girder structure.
Thu Thiem 2 Bridge is considered the second cable-stayed bridge after Phu My Bridge in the transport infrastructure system of Ho Chi Minh City. It is an important project in connecting traffic, helping to share the pressure of vehicles with the Saigon Bridge and the Saigon River Tunnel, and at the same time, creating a motivation for the development of Thu Duc City in particular and HCMC in general.
Starting from 3 p.m. this afternoon, private and public vehicles will officially be allowed to cross Thu Thiem 2 Bridge after the inauguration ceremony held this morning.
