The project has a total investment of VND 1,250 billion, is expected to start construction in 2017 and completed after 18 months of construction. After completion, Nguyen Khoai Bridge will connect Saigon South with the downtown area, creating a further direction to the central area to reduce the load on the Kenh Te Bridge. It is currently severely congested.

Recently, the area south of Sai Gon, including District 4, District 7, District 8 and Nha Be district, has many new urban areas, the project has attracted the crowed population to the south when putting into use. While this area is being separated from the central area by the Tau Hu canal, Ben Nghe canal, Te canal, Duong canal.

Connecting the South with the central area is mainly through the Nhi Thien Duong Bridge, Y Bridge, Chanh Hung Bridge, Nguyen Van Cu Bridge, Kenh Te Bridge and Tan Thuan Bridge. But these bridges are now overloaded due to the narrow width. When the two sides are extended, the slope becomes a bottleneck, so congestion usually occurs.
