At night, a group of workers dismantled Thu Thiem Toll Plaza (District 2) to create a clear passage for vehicles in front of the tunnel across the Saigon River.

Today, from 23h to 4am, more than a dozen workers dismantled the items of Thu Thiem Toll Plaza at the head of the tunnel across the Saigon River (District 2), facilitating the passing of vehicles.

The station is 340 m from the Thu Thiem Tunnel, with 12 cabins and 10 toll lanes, built with ODA from the Japanese government but abandoned for seven years.

Earlier, the HCMC People’s Committee approved the Department of Transportation to drop the toll station. The cost of dismantling is taken from the annual maintenance fund of the center. It is expected that by the end of April, the dismantling will be completed.

Thu Thiem Terminal was built in 2011, at the same time the tunnel was put into use. However, after that, the state decided to collect road tolls and to abolish fees in works funded by the state budget. Therefore Thu Thiem Toll Stations did not operate.

Before the Thu Thiem tunnel situation is stuck in peak hours due to the sudden increase of motorcycles, by the end of 2017, the HCM City People’s Committee has agreed to the Department of Transportation dismantle the toll station.
