Hanoi accelerates construction of smart urban projects

The completion of these projects would help ensure Hanoi’s rapid and sustainable development towards green, smart, and modernization while maintaining the harmonization between rural and urban areas.

The capital city has so far completed around 70% of the total area subject to site clearance under smart urban projects in the city.

To date, the progress has been encouraging as contractors are speeding up the completion of the site clearance process.

According to a recent report, site clearance for the construction of the new residential project Tay Mo – Dai Mo – Vinhomes Park in Nam Tu Liem District has almost concluded, with the  70% of the work volume completed.

Around 80% of the land for the projects in the communes of Xuan Canh, Dong Hoi, and Mai Lam (Dong Anh District) have been cleared, and the authorities are handing over clear sites to contractors.

The local authorities are also working on investment procedures for the construction of the smart city project in Dong Anh District, with an investment capital of US$4.2 billion from the joint venture of Sumitomo Corporation and BRG Group.

Secretary of the Hanoi Party Committee Dinh Tien Dung in a recent meeting with Japan’s Ambassador to Vietnam Yamada Takio pledged to complete the site clearance on time for the construction to start in June 2022.

“This is significant as it is one of the main projects celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam-Japan diplomatic relations by 2023,” he added.

Under the municipal Party Committee’s program No.03 on urban renovation and development of urban economy in Hanoi in the 2021-2025 period, the city is tasked with building 2 to 3 new smart urban areas.

This would help ensure the city’s rapid and sustainable development towards green, smart, and modernization while maintaining the harmonization between rural and urban areas.
