HA NOI — Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung has urged that construction on the second terminal at the Noi Bai International Airport, the Nhat Tan-Noi Bai expressway and the Nhat Tan Bridge complete by 2015.
At an urban planning working session with members of the capital People's Committee on Saturday, Dung said special attention should be given to the 11.7km road connecting the city's Nhat Tan area with the airport, as it would give visitors their first impression of Ha Noi.
People's Committee Chairman Nguyen The Thao said the city had completed planning for five satellite towns.
He called on the Government to allow specific mechanisms to attract investment to the Nhat Tan-Noi Bai axis.
Dung said the axis would be a highlight of the region, stressing that construction on the Nhat Tan-Noi Bai road would go together with that on the Nhat Tan Bridge and the new Noi Bai airport terminal.
The PM requested the city to attract investors alongside effectively managing its zoning and development activities. — VNS
