HA NOI (VNS) — Thousands of people rushed back to Ha Noi and HCM City following the new year holiday, causing traffic jams on several streets and overwhelming coach stations.

Traffic jams occurred yesterday afternoon on the streets near the major coach stations of Ha Noi---Pham Hung, Pham Van Dong and Giai Phong---as well as at the major intersections of Cau Giay–Kim Ma and Nguyen Trai–Khuat Duy Tien.

Mien Dong coach station (Binh Thanh District, HCM City) was flooded by a sea of people at 4am today.

There was no room for the entry of buses returning from nearby provinces. Instead, they lined up in four rows outside the station and waited for their turn to enter.

Conflicts broke out constantly between the buses, coaches and taxis crowded at the entrance gate. Many exhausted passengers fell asleep on the station's stone benches.

Traffic jams occurred on Dinh Bo Linh Street and on roads leading to Mien Dong Station, blocking the flow of thousands of vehicles.

Several more buses approached the station as rush hour drew near. Traffic then got even heavier as the city's residents started leaving for work. — VNS
