Vietnam Railways has announced a temporary service connecting Ho Chi Minh City and Binh Duong Province, allowing passengers to travel more easily after a bridge collapse last month severed the north-south rail link. Six trains will depart every day, including three from Saigon Station at 4:40 a.m., 5:10 a.m. and 4:30 pm, and three from Binh Duong's Di An Station at 9:20 a.m., 12:08 pm and 1:30 p.m. The service will last from April 15 to June 30, when a new rail bridge is built to replace the Ghenh Bridge in Dong Nai Province. The century-old bridge was struck by a vessel. Tickets will cost between VND5,000 and VND10,000. The expected travel time is 40 minutes.

Currently, due to the bridge disaster, passengers have to catch a replacement bus to go between HCMC and Bien Hoa Station in Dong Nai Province.
