Construction of Ring Road No.4 must advance daily: Hanoi Mayor
The mayor called on all city units to speed up the preparation of projects, especially site clearance and land compensation for affected households.
The construction of Ring Road No.4 should not progress weekly, but daily, which requires the maximum effort of the entire political system to ensure a good start to the project.

Chairman of the Hanoi People's Committee Tran Sy Thanh urged speeding up the implementation of the Ring Road No.4 project during a November 7 meeting with Thanh Oai district leaders.
The Ring Road No.4 project, seen as a national priority, is designed to have a total length of 112.8 kilometers and covers a combined area of 1,341 hectares.
It runs through Hanoi (58.2 kilometers), Hung Yen (19.3 kilometers), and Bac Ninh (25.6 kilometers), linking the Hanoi-Lao Cai expressway with the Noi Bai-Ha Long expressway.
With a total investment of VND85.8 trillion (US$3.7 billion), the project, whose construction starts next June until 2026, is expected to bolster provincial connectivity between Hanoi and northern provinces in the capital area.
Given the huge workload and time constraints, all units in the city and localities are expected to speed up preparation, especially working out mechanisms for site clearance and land compensation for affected households to ensure their rights, Thanh said at the meeting.

At the meeting, the Chairman of Thanh Oai District People’s Committee, Bui Van Sang, noted the project would run 7.9 kilometers through the district, involving an area of 79.36 hectares from 1,501 households, individuals and organizations, including 1.3 hectares of non-agricultural land and 78.1 hectares of agricultural land.
During this process, 40 households are subject to resettlement, and 1,145 tombs will be relocated.
Sang noted that the total amount of compensation for affected households is estimated at VND1.05 trillion (US$42.2 million).
The Thanh Oai’s Chairman said to date, the district has set up a Compensation and Resettlement Committee and supporting groups for site clearance, with the primary responsibility of informing the locals on the main objectives of the Ring road No.4 project and the detailed plan for site clearance in Thanh Oai District.
Thanh called for the city to soon approve the resettlement area of 1.9 hectares in the Cu Khe Ward and the expansion of the cemeteries in both the Cu Khe and My Hung wards by an additional 2.6 hectares.
He expected the establishment of the resettlement area and the expansion of two cemeteries would be carried out in parallel with the construction of Ring Road No.4.
Ring Road No.4, once completed, would connect 14 districts from three northern cities/provinces of Hanoi, Hung Yen, and Bac Ninh with a total length of 98 kilometers.
The project's total investment cost is VND85.8 trillion ($3.7 billion), with VND41.8 trillion ($1.8 billion) for the 2021-2025 period sourced from the state budget. Of the total, Hanoi would contribute VND22.47 trillion ($967.2 million) from its local budget, Hung Yen VND1 trillion ($43 million), and Bac Ninh VND2 trillion ($86 million).
In the subsequent five years, the project funding would continue to be allocated VND14.5 trillion ($624.2 million), with Hanoi contributing VND4 trillion ($172 million), Hung Yen VND505 billion ($21.7 million), and Bac Ninh VND1.16 trillion ($50 million).
The private sector, meanwhile, is expected to fund VND29.4 trillion ($1.26 billion).
