At least that’s how it looked on the first day...

Traffic on an overpass to Tan Son Nhat International Airport that opened on Monday morning. The construction took five months and was completed two months ahead of schedule.


Only cars and buses are allowed to use the overpass. Congestion is a common problem facing people trying to get to Tan Son Nhat, the country’s largest airport, especially ahead of big holidays.


The overpass goes to the domestic and international terminals, and cost VND242 billion ($10.6 million) to build.

Part of another overpass also opened on the same day for all vehicles weighing less than 10 tons.


The second overpass is estimated to cost VND504 billion, and construction is ongoing.
