Phu My Bridge work should not hinder ships   2008-09-05 - VNS

Ships sailing beneath a bridge being built across the Sai Gon River in HCM City will be safe during the installation of cables later this year, according to the contractor.

Nguyen Thanh Thai, general director of Phu My BOT Join Stock Company, the contractor, said his company had signed a VND48 billion (US$2.9 million) contract with the Zone 2 Navigation Guaranty Company for the purpose.

Zone 2 will be responsible for guiding ships passing beneath the Phu My Bridge when the cables are installed between September this year and July next year.

Thai said thanks to the experienced company’s support, vessels of up to 37.7 meters in height could continue to access the ports of Sai Gon, Viet Nam International Container Terminal, Ben Nghe, and Tan Thuan Dong.

Le Hoang Quan, chairman of the city People’s Committee, had on August 21 instructed companies and agencies involved to set up a task force to ensure ships have access during the construction period.

He had stressed the need to establish close co-operation between all the parties involved to ensure navigation safety.
