HA NOI (VNS) — A stretch of Ring Road No 2, connecting Ton That Tung Street and Vong Intersection in Ha Noi, will be opened to public before the Lunar New Year holiday.
The holiday will be from February 8 to 13, 2016.
Vice-chairman of the capital people's committee Nguyen Quoc Hung has ordered the contractors of the work on the stretch to speed up their progress to meet the deadline.
Hung said the contractors should increase their speed, while ensuring the safety of workers and people living near the construction site.
With regard to another stretch of Ring Road No 2, linking Tay Ho District's Nhat Tan Bridge and Cau Giay District, Hung said the city's natural resources and environment department should co-operate with the people's committee of Tay Ho, Ba Dinh, Dong Da and Cau Giay districts to finish land clearance before December 31.
Ring Road No 2's constructions began in March 2012, and will cost trillions of dong (one trillion of dong is worth about US$44.3 million).
The 43.6km road runs through Vinh Tuy, Minh Khai, Dai La and Vong Intersection, Truong Chinh Street, So Intersection, Lang and Cau Giay, as well as Buoi, Nhat Tan Bridge,Vinh Ngoc and Dong Hoi, and also Chui Bridge and Hanel Industrial Park. — VNS
