HÀ NỘI — The Hà Nội Department of Transport has rearranged traffic on several roads around central Hoàn Kiếm District to reduce traffic jams in the area.
As per the department’s plan, automobiles will run one way on Hàng Khoai Street and will be banned from turning left on Nguyễn Thiếp Street.
Cars will also run one way on Nguyễn Thiện Thuật Street. Automobiles wanting to go from Hàng Khoai Street to Trần Nhật Duật Street will have to travel towards Hàng Khoai-Nguyễn Thiện Thuật-Cao Thắng-Trần Nhật Duật.
The plan has been put in place since last Saturday.
The Hoàn Kiếm District Police, the Hà Nội Department of Transport and local authorities will collaborate to instruct residents and drivers from now until this Saturday.
Strict punishments will be given to violators from next week.
More signs will be installed in the area to direct drivers. — VNS
