HA NOI ()VNS) — Ha Noi's People's Committee asked the Ha Noi Transport Corporation to speed up construction on the My Dinh Bus Station expansion and assure its completion by January 2015.
Nguyen Quoc Hung, vice chairman of the committee, made the request after inspecting the project and its progress on Monday.
The expansion area was expected to ease the station's current problem with overcrowding. The project started during the first quarter of last year. The company planned to complete construction by the middle of January 2015.
The My Dinh Bus Station expansion was approved last year, with Ha Noi Transport Corporation investing VND55 billion (US$2.5 million). The expansion will be about 13,000 square metres.
During the inspection, Hung also assigned the People's Committee of Nam Tu Liem District to work with police and transport inspectors to crack down on temporary parking lots that overcharge passengers.
My Dinh Bus Station has been operating for ten years. Covering a total area of 20,000 square metres, it hosts more than 200 transport companies with more than 150 bus routes. — VNS
