The temporary floating bridge over the Ka Long border river is the first of its kind to connect Mong Cai city with Dongxing city of China.
The bridge, which has a total investment of VND160 billion (US$7.09 million), is 114m long and 12m wide and has two lanes for vehicles.
The floating bridge is expected to boost the import-export activities and economic development between the two border cities and minimise the impact of the weather on goods transport.
It will also help to reduce the cost of transportation, contributing to the socio-economic development of the two localities.
