Vice-Chairman of the committee Nguyen Quoc Hung has asked the Ha Noi Transport Department to coordinate with relevant agencies to remove the billboards, including banners and plinths.
The announcement came after the committee's discussion with a Japanese vice-ambassador.
The Nhat Tan Bridge is of great economic, political and social significance as it connects Ha Noi to industrial parks in the north, helps complete belt road No 2 and reduces the distance between the capital city and Noi Bai International Airport. The funds for constructing the bridge came from the Japan Bank for International Co-operation and the Vietnamese government.
The People's Committee also asked the Japanese embassy to recommend Japanese or Ha Noi-based advertisement agencies to design new billboards for Nhat Tan Bridge and for the route from the bridge to Noi Bai.
This is aimed at maintaining urban beauty and traffic safety. — VNS
