With just over three months before the commercial operation of the line's elevated section, the VNRA has just set up a team to appraise the system safety dossier of the section from Nhon to Hanoi Station.

This team is tasked with leading the assessment of the safety documentation for the project in line with the legal responsibilities of the VNRA.

This includes evaluating safety system assessment reports issued by the certifying organizations with respect to the information and signaling systems on the rolling stock and on the tracks, the traction power supply system, integrated system assessment, operational testing, system commissioning, and safety management system assessments. The team will also assess the risk of evacuation plans for passengers in case of emergency, on viaducts, in tunnels, railway stations.

The team will compile and synthesize reports from relevant agencies, which will later be submitted to the VNRA director for approval.

Work on the Nhon to Hanoi Station metro project began in September 2010. This urban railway line spans a length of 12.5 kilometers, of which 8.5 kilometers are elevated and four underground. The total investment for the project was subsequently increased from VND18 trillion (US$728 million) to VND34.5 trillion ($1.4 billion).
