Bilfinger Berger erecting cable-stayed bridge in Vietnam
2,000 meters long and taller than the Great Pyramid

Bilfinger Berger is erecting another major cable-stayed bridge in Vietnam. The new, two-kilometer long Phu My Bridge across the Saigon River will provide significant relief for inner-city traffic in Ho Chi Minh City, which has a population of six million. The core of the structure is a 700-meter long cable-stayed construction supported by two 140-meter high pylons. The project has a volume of €80 million. Bilfinger Berger previously built the My Thuan cable-stayed bridge across the Mekong River between 1997 and 2000. The Group was involved from the early design stage of the Phu My Bridge and provided important fundamentals for the feasibility study.
