At Phuoc Loc Bridge, Dat Phuong Joint Stock Company deployed the construction of the main bridge part spanning Ong Lon 2 canal with total length of 386.62m. The project management board has faced many difficulties in the construction process from site clearance to execution conditions: the most urgent implementation phase with a large amount of work is in the rainy season (from June to October), the project is located in a low-lying area, so floods often occur, specific construction conditions are on height and on river, … Overcoming those difficulties, with close direction, the coordination and the support of the Board of Directors of Dat Phuong, along with the determination of the Executive Board, the most reasonable construction methods have been applied, manpower, machinery and equipment have been maximally mobilized to be able to complete the work items.
Contributing to the initial success of the project, the Board of Directors as well as the Executive Board of Dat Phuong determined: because the construction time was less than 2 months, all resources must be use up to speed up the progress of bringing Phuoc Loc bridge into use, creating an important premise for transport connection between Phuoc Loc and Phuoc Kien communes, thereby facilitating socio-economic development in the area surrounding the project.
Phuoc Loc Bridge linking two communes of Phuoc Loc and Phuoc Kien is located in the end of Dao Su Tich street, a major road of Nha Be district, with total length of the bridge of 386.62m and its approach is 323.39m. The bridge, after being put into use, will connect directly from the downtown to Phuoc Loc commune, creating an inter-district connection line, and at the same time play the role of connecting the national waterway axis of Ong Lon canal – Cay Kho canal – Can Giuoc river with maritime route being Soai Rap seagoing ship fairway. Phuoc Loc Bridge – Nha Be district is one of the key transport projects of the city, contributing step by step to complete the transport infrastructure system in accordance with the development orientation of the city planning.
