The economic development of Vietnam has seen an increase in vehicular traffic in the Capital, Hanoi City. The Red River flowing across the city has few bridges, curtailing efforts to divert trucks around the city center. The Nhat Tan Bridge is set to solve this problem upon its completion in 2014. This website provides a summary of the project and updates on the construction progress.
