Southeast Asia’s longest cable bridge opens in Vietnam

A 2,750-metre long bridge opened in Vietnam’s Mekong Delta region on Saturday, becoming the world’s seventh longest cable-stayed bridge. Crossing the Hau River, the Can Tho Bridge is also Southeast Asia’s longest suspension bridge, with a main span of 550 metres. The US$295 million bridge links the city of Can Tho with Vinh Long province, reducing travelling time by 30 minutes.
