Hanoi plans to build more tunnels to ease traffic congestion

Tunnels along a ring road will both ease congestion and smooth traffic flow from outside to the capital city.

Hanoi’s authorities have been urged to build a number of tunnels along its Ring Road No.3, the roadway connecting the city and nearby regions.

The tunnels become crucial for Ring Road No.3 as the road has a very large traffic volume formed by both domestic traffic flow and a transit traffic axis connecting many provinces and cities with the center of Hanoi.

Under the city’s transport planning approved by the prime minister in March 2016, Ring Road No.3 will gather some tunnels at different crossings while having some, including one connecting Hanoi and Haiphong.
