As part of the Hanoi urban transport development project, the work is expected to shorten travel time from the downtown area to western and northwestern areas of the city.
Once completed, the belt road will be 58-64 meters wide, including two lanes on each side. With a total investment of US$304.7 million, the city’s urban transport development project was loaned over $155 million by the WB and given $9.8 million aid by the Global Environmental Facility.
The project will also help build an express bus system and a residential resettlement area. Deputy Chairman of the Hanoi People’s Committee Nguyen Van Khoi said the work will contribute to improving transport infrastructure for municipal socio-economic development.
