This year, Hanoi authorities plan to build steel overpasses for cars and motorbikes as well as underground and high-rise car parks to gradually reduce traffic congestion in the capital city.

Under the plan, Hanoi will build nine multi-storey car parks in such areas as Phung Hung, Tran Nhat Duat, Tran Khanh Du, Ngoc Khanh and Kim Nguu.

In addition, in its long-term strategy to 2015, Hanoi will construct more than 50 underground and above-ground car parks in many inner city areas in the next four years.

Another solution for the city’s traffic congestion problem is the building of steel overpasses for cars and motorbikes at T-junctions where traffic jams often occur, including Lang Ha-Huynh Thuc Khang, Chua Boc-Son Tay, Lang-Le Van Luong, and Lang-Tran Duy Hung.

Each four-lane overpass will be built at a cost of 150 billion VND and will take four months to complete./.
