HA NOI (VNS) — The flyover at the Nguyen Chi Thanh-Kim Ma intersection, one of the most crowded streets in Hanoi, was open to traffic on October 5, helping reduce traffic jams in the route from the inner city to the west.
The four-lane steel frame flyover, which is 484m in length and 16m in width, has a span of 60m, making it the largest of the kind so far in Ha Noi . It was completed after eight months of construction, one month ahead of schedule.
This is one project under the city's target programme to reduce traffic jams and ensure urban order for the 2012-2015 period.
At the inauguration ceremony, Deputy Prime Minister Hoang Trung Hai praised efforts of workers, contractors and Hanoi authorities in implementing the project, the seventh of its kind in the city, which is of great importance to improve traffic in the western area of the city.
Hanoi also plans to complete several key transport projects within this year and next year, including the O Cho Dua-Hoang Cau and the O Dong Mac-Nguyen Khoai sections of the belt road No.1.—VNA/VNS
