The total investment capital for these projects is expected to be more than VND 10.5 trillion (USD 452 million).

Most transport projects are aimed at connecting traffic, promoting the capacity and efficiency of the newly completed Ha Long - Hai Phong and Ha Long - Van Don expressways.

Projects are hoped to improve the province’s transport infrastructure system, thus contributing to the local socio-economic development and promoting local tourism and border- and marine-economic potential.

Particularly, the transport projects connecting Ha Long city with Hoanh Bo district will have three bridges. The province will firstly invest in the construction of two bridges of Cua Luc 1 and 3.

Cua Luc 1 bridge is designed to have a length of 4.2km and Cua Luc 3 bridge with a length of 2.4km. The bridges are expected to be completed in 2022.

These two bridges will meet the travel needs of local people, ensuring traffic in the rainy season and reducing the overload on Bai Chay bridge in Ha Long city.

Cua Luc 2 bridge is expected to be built in the near future with design of movable bridge to serve maritime traffic.
