According to Sai Gon Giai Phong’s reporter, cracks appear in a road connecting to Phu My Bridge which spans the Saigon River to link Ho Chi Minh City’s districts 2 and 7. The 10 m split is discovered in the connecting road of district 7.


The cable-stayed Phu My Bridge spanning the Saigon River to link Ho Chi Minh City’ district 7 to district 2 and Hanoi highway was officially opened to motorbikes and cars of under nine seats September 9. It is one of key road of the city’s eastern outer traffic road system to Nguyen Van Linh Boulevard in the South of HCM city and the Mekong delta provinces. 


The six-lane bridge, which began construction in early 2007, has a total invested capital of some VND2 trillion. It is 2.5 kilometers long and has a vertical clearance of 45 meters for river vessels.


Many motorists prefer to cross the bridge because it is 10 kilometers shorter to reach the Hanoi Highway. Otherwise, vehicles must travel along Nguyen Tat Thanh Street and Nguyen Huu Canh to reach the highway.


Everyday, there are hundreds of heavy vehicles travelling through Phu My Bridge to transport cross road in A section of South Saigon.
