Hanoi (VNS/VNA) - The capital city of Hanoi plans to establish underground public car parks at 78 sites across four central districts, as confirmed by the municipal People's Committee.

These car parks will be constructed beneath public spaces such as parks, squares, and gardens. Spanning a total of 104 hectares, each car park will consist of three to four storeys.

The city’s authorities will also repurpose existing car parks in historic inner-city areas to create underground and multi-storey parking zones.

Based on Hanoi's recently approved underground space plan, the city's subterranean area will encompass 756 square metres across 20 districts, with a maximum depth of 30 metres. The underground network will comprise transportation, technical infrastructure, electrical systems, and public spaces such as commercial and service centres, supermarkets, entertainment venues, and car parks./.
