NDO – The Hanoi municipal People’s Committee commenced the construction of a flyover at the Hoang Quoc Viet – Nguyen Van Huyen intersection along with the upgrade of Nguyen Van Huyen Street on October 10.

The flyover has a total investment of VND560 billion (US$24.08 million) soured from the city’s budget. It measures 278m in length and 16m in width.

Vice Chairman of Hanoi municipal People’s Committee Nguyen The Hung said that the city has put 11 flyovers into operation over the past years, contributing to easing traffic congestion and accidents.

The building of the flyover aims to handle the narrow section on Nguyen Van Huyen Street, thereby increasing traffic capacity, reducing congestion, and facilitating vehicles moving through the Belt Roads No.2 and No.3, Hung said.

Hung added that the flyover will also contribute to perfecting the transportation network as well as promoting socio-economic development in the districts of Cau Giay, Tay Ho and Bac Tu Liem.

The construction of the flyover is scheduled for completion in 285 days.

*This morning, a road linking Hoang Quoc Viet Street with the Tay Ho Tay Urban Area was opened to traffic. The road has a length of nearly 630m and a width of 50m.
