Its main technical features include a horizontal underbridge reach of 16m, maximum overhead reach of 18.4m, vertical depth unberbridge of 21.6m and the ability to operate over 3.9 m barriers and a sidewalk clearance of 3.8m. Payload is 250 kg.

The bridge’s length is 1856m, making it the longest suspension bridge in Vietnam, boasting a width of 18m and four traffic lanes.
