The Tay Son- Chua Boc flyover is 249 meters long and was cost VND65.5 billion (US$3.1 million), while the 189 meter-long Lang Ha- Thai Ha was built at a cost of VND67 billion (US$3.2 million).
Each two-lane flyover, which is 9 meters wide and 4.75 meters above ground at their highest point, were built from eight prefabricated steel pillars. The flyovers’ surface is made of plastic and mixed concrete to reduce road noise.
At the inauguration ceremony Nguyen The Thao, chairman of Ha Noi People's Committee, said work will begin on a four-lane flyover at the Lang Ha-Le Van Luong and Lang Road- Tran Duy Hung junctions in May, work that is expected to be completed in December.
The city’s People’s Committee also approved the construction of three more steel flyovers at junctions like Chua Boc- Pham Ngoc Thach, Dai Co Viet- Tran Khat Chan and Bach Mai- Le Thanh Nghi.
