HA NOI (VNS) — Hundreds of workers are working to ensure that the construction of Thanh Xuan and Trung Hoa tunnels in Ha Noi will be completed on schedule, the project investors have said. 

Pham Anh Tu, a representative of the transport ministry's Thang Long Project management board, said the two projects had to be ready and opened to traffic by the end of this December. 

The construction of Trung Hoa Tunnel began on February 3. About 68 per cent of the work has been completed so far. The base of the project has been finished, while interior and exterior sections are half-complete. The rest of the work will be finished by December 5. 

Tu said the project would basically be ready by December 31. Additional work would take one more month. 

Tran Van Son, deputy director of the project's management board, said 200 more workers had been mobilised to work round-the-clock. 

The construction of Thanh Xuan Tunnel begun last July and about 62 per cent of the work has been completed so far, about nine per cent behind schedule. 

Tu said the reason for the delay was the overlap between the project and the construction of Cat Linh-Ha Dong urban railway. 

The Thang Long Project management board has asked the contractors to revise the progress and to take measures to ensure the projects were completed as per schedule. — VNS
