The Noibai International Airport and downtown Hanoi are separated by the 1km wide Red River.
The Thang long bridge, constructed 30 years ago is currently the only link across over this river, resulting in serious traffic congestion and many accidents. The Nhat Tan Bridge will provide an alternative and more direct access route, reducing the transit time from the airport.

The Main Bridge, a 1500m long cable-stayed bridge with multiple spans, is very rare type of bridge in the world and it will be one of the longest bridges in South East Asia upon completion. This bridge, the gateway to Hanoi, will also serve as symbol of the friendship between Vietnam and Japan.
