Vĩnh Tuy is one of seven bridges across the Red River in Hà Nội. The construction of this 5.8-km long and 19.25-m wide bridge with four lanes began in 2005 to welcome the 1000th anniversary of Thăng Long-Hà Nội. The bridge has some branches linking with the regional transport network.   

Completely constructed by Vietnamese engineers and workers, the building is worth of VND 3,598 trillion allocated from the State budget.
