HÀ NỘI — A road connecting Nguyễn Văn Cừ Street in Long Biên District to the left bank of the Red River was inaugurated on Monday in the capital city.
The road is 1.5km long and 40m wide. It was constructed with total investment of VNĐ985 billion (US$43.6 million).
It has synchronous technical infrastructure consisting of a water supply-drainage system, lighting system, trees and power and TV cables that are laid underground.
Some 470 households and organisations were relocated for the construction of the road.
The road creates an interconnection between Chương Dương, Vĩnh Tuy and Thanh Trì bridges and the Hà Nội-Hải Phòng Expressway, helping to ease traffic congestion on the streets of Nguyễn Văn Cừ and Nguyễn Văn Linh, the Chui Bridge and the Long Biên-Bát Tràng embankment. — VNS
