Hanoi Department of Transport has proposed to build three bridges over the To Lich River for pedestrians and bicycle riders.
From 2019 to 2020, Hanoi authorities will have to spend VND36bn (USD1.5m) to build the bridges at 221 Nguyen Khang Street, 79 Nguyen Khang Street and 169 Nguyen Ngoc Vu Street.VND28bn of the investment will come from the city’s budget.
Lang Street is highly populated with many schools, hospitals, state offices and new urban areas. Even though there are many bus stops, they are located away from the bridges and cause difficulties for travellers who want to reach Lang Street from Nguyen Khang and Nguyen Ngoc Vu.
According to the department, it is necessary to build more pedestrian bridges.
