    MY THUAN BRIDGE

    The My Thuan Bridge, located in the Mekong Delta region of southern Vietnam, was completed in May 2000. Built with Australian assistance, the My Thuan Bridge represents an architectural expression of the friendship and co-operation between the peoples and governments of Vietnam and Australia.
    Studies indicate that the bridge will be a major catalyst for an improvement in living conditions for Vietnamese people living in the delta region and also throughout the country.

    The 4,500 kilometre long Mekong River is the tenth longest river in the world, flowing through China, Burma, Thailand, Laos and Cambodia from its source region in Tibet to its mouth in Vietnam where it flows into the South China Sea (see figure 2). There are main two branches of the Mekong River in Vietnam, the Tien Giang and the Hau Giang.

    The Tien Giang is the main branch of the Mekong River as it flows through Vietnam and it is an international shipping channel used by vessels moving to and from Cambodia.

    Australian companies, with support from Vietnamese enterprises, prepared the feasibility study for the project, undertook detailed engineering design for the bridge, acted as lead contractors for construction, and supervised construction performance. Vietnamese companies undertook 45 percent of the construction of the bridge through subcontracts.

    National Highway 1, south of Ho Chi Minh City, is the principal road link to the Mekong Delta, with roads diverging to the south, southeast and west of the Mekong Delta from the southern banks of the Tien Giang. The My Thuan Bridge is thus a critical link in the road network in southern Vietnam.
