The minister said the cause “is considered an unfortunate occurrence that is difficult to foresee in normal designing.”

Construction of the 295 million USD bridge spanning the Hau River, a branch of the Mekong River, that will link the southern province of Vinh Long and Can Tho city, kicked off on Sept. 25, 2004.

Once completed, it will be Vietnam’s longest cable-stayed bridge with a 1 km main section and a four-lane carriageway of 26m wide.
