Ho Chi Minh City authorities have said they will restrict traffic on Le Duan Boulevard in District 1 in the next four days to organize a musical performance to thank local football supporters.
A ban will be enforced on traffic on one part of Le Duan to prepare for a concert on Tuesday night next week, according to the municipal Department of Transport.
All vehicles will be barred from the Le Duan section bounded by Nam Ky Khoi Nghia and Pasteur Streets from 0:00 on Saturday to 5:00 on Tuesday.
A stage for the concert, meant to extend gratitude to football supporters in Ho Chi Minh City, will be set up on the section during the ban, the department said.
Commuters can use the following alternative routes:
Route 1: Nam Ky Khoi Nghia => Alexandre de Rhodes => Pham Ngoc Thach => Le Duan or Nam Ky Khoi Nghia => Han Thuyen => Pasteur => Le Duan.
Route 2: Le Duan => Pasteur => Alexandre de Rhodes => Nam Ky Khoi Nghia or Le Duan => Cong Xa Paris => Han Thuyen => Nam Ky Khoi Nghia.
The transport department required that drivers follow orders by traffic police officers or traffic signs in order to prevent congestion when traveling near the restricted area.
