Thu Thiem 2 Bridge is a cable-stayed road bridge currently under construction across the Saigon River, connecting District 1 with Thu Duc City in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. The bridge is expected to be completed in which year and what is its location and scale? Let’s find out more in the article below with AVA.
When will the construction of Thu Thiem 2 Bridge be completed?
Due to land clearance issues, the contractor was unable to install the cable-stayed section connecting the final span of the bridge, which is necessary to open the main bridge from District 1 to Thu Duc City. The Department of Planning and Investment of Ho Chi Minh City has submitted a report to evaluate the adjusted construction project of Thu Thiem 2 Bridge.
Adjusting the completion timeline of the construction project for Thu Thiem 2 Bridge to 2023 is deemed appropriate for it to become operational. This is to ensure compliance with the requirements of the State Audit. Within one year, the investor will complete the construction project when they are provided with vacant land.
Location of Thu Thiem 2 Bridge
Thu Thiem 2 Bridge has its starting point at the intersection of Le Duan and Ton Duc Thang, along Ton Duc Thang Street in District 1, crossing the Saigon River and connecting to the Arc Road in the new Thu Thiem urban area.
Once completed, Thu Thiem 2 Bridge – Luong Dinh Cua Street – Arc Road will create a new traffic flow, directly connecting from the center of District 1 to the Long Thanh – Dau Giay Expressway. Specifically, from Le Duan, District 1 – Thu Thiem 2 Bridge – Arc Road – Luong Dinh Cua Street – An Phu interchange (and vice versa).
Scale of Thu Thiem 2 Bridge project
Thu Thiem 2 Bridge spans across the Saigon River with a total length of 1.4 km, featuring 6 lanes: 4 lanes for cars and 2 lanes for mixed traffic, including 3 bridge branches:
The main branch, with a length of 437m, has 4 lanes for straight travel, passing through the intersection of Le Thanh Ton – Nguyen Huu Canh, connecting the Ton Duc Thang – Le Duan routes.

Branch N1, with a total length of 195.5m, starts from Me Linh Square running along Ton Duc Thang Street, following the Saigon River and connecting to the main bridge, passing through the new Thu Thiem urban area.
Featuring a design style inspired by the Dragon Bridge and a cable-stayed bridge with a main tower height of 113m, leaning towards the new Thu Thiem urban area, Thu Thiem 2 Bridge will be a prominent architectural landmark on the Saigon River, visible both day and night.
