HA NOI (VNS) — Ha Noi will stop granting licences to dig pavements and repairing roads and take down construction fences so that public activities can commemorate the 60th anniversary of the city's Liberation Day (October 10, 1954).

Deputy head of the municipal Department of Transport Nguyen Xuan Tan said the department would work with the police and local authorities to hasten construction projects. These included the opening of Belt Road 2 from Nhat Tan Bridge to Xuan La Road and Route 5 from Long Bien District to Thang Long Bridge, as well as the opening of a traffic light control centre in Hoan Kiem District and a bus route using smart cards.

The department would also mobilise buses to meet increasing demand and strengthen inspections of wharfs and tourism sites around West Lake, Thu Le Lake, Bay Mau Lake and the Hong (Red) River. Police would be on duty in places where cultural events were held to divide lanes and ensure smooth traffic flow.

About 494,500 cars and more than 4.8 million motorbikes are operating in Ha Noi. There are 89 bus routes serving five million passengers annually.

Since early this year, 15,780 traffic violation cases were found and 301 vehicles were seized. Total fines were estimated at VND17.4 billion (US$828,000). — VNS
