HÀ NỘI — Hà Nội’s People’s Committee has approved a feasibility study for a project that will build a tunnel between Belt Ring Road 2.5 and Giải Phóng Street in Hoàng Mai District.
The tunnel will start at the middle of Kim Đồng Street and move through Giải Phóng Road to connect with Đầm Hồng-Giáp Bát Road, with a length of 600m.
Construction is expected to begin in 2019, with the cost reaching VNĐ670 trillion (US$29.1 million), funded by the city budget.
The city requested the project management board update the detailed plans on both sides of the road and the status of the area to ensure the infrastructure of the project.
To solve traffic jams, the city built three tunnels through the key junctions, including Kim Liên tunnel, a tunnel at intersection of Trung Hòa and Thăng Long Boulevard and an underpass connecting Nguyễn Trãi Road with National Highway No 6. — VNS
