The roofed bridges, 3.5m wide and about 78m long, will help passengers easily reach the elevated stations from nearby residential areas, shopping centers, and bus stops.

They are expected to be completed by the end of 2023, at the same time with the completion of the first metro line (Ben Thanh - Suoi Tien).

The two remaining elevated stations, Suoi Tien and Van Thanh, have already had bridges linked with them.

The Ben Thanh - Suoi Tien urban rail route, about 19.7km long and invested with some VND 43.7 trillion (USD 1.86 billion), comprises three underground stations (Ben Thanh, the Municipal Theatre, and Ba Son) and 11 elevated stations. It will have 17 trains carrying a maximum of 930 passengers each.
