Cars will be able to move in both directions at night on a number of streets in Ho Chi Minh City that currently allow only one-way car traffic, according to the municipal Department of Transport.

The department on Tuesday announced the new rule will be applied on nine streets in District 1 and District 10 from 10:00 pm until 6:00 am the next morning every day, starting from May 10.

The nine streets include:

— Bui Thi Xuan Street in District 1, between intersections with Cach Mang Thang Tam Street and Alley 150 of Nguyen Trai Street.

— Nguyen Huu Cau Street in District 1, between intersections with Tran Quang Khai Street and Hai Ba Trung Street.

— Nguyen Huy Tu Street in District 1, between intersections with Dinh Tien Hoang Street and Nguyen Van Giai Street.

— Nguyen Van Giai Street in District 1, between intersections with Dinh Tien Hoang Street and Bui Huu Nghia Bridge.

— Pham Viet Chanh Street in District 1, between intersections with Nguyen Thi Minh Khai Street and Cong Quynh Street.

— Suong Nguyet Anh Street in District 1, between intersections with Ton That Tung Street and Cach Mang Thang Tam Street.

— Thu Khoa Huan Street in District 1, between intersections with Ly Tu Trong Street and Le Thanh Ton Street.

— Ton That Hiep Street in District 1, between intersections with Ho Tung Mau Street and Pasteur Street.

— Su Van Hanh Street in District 10, between intersections with Ba Thang Hai Street and To Hien Thanh Street.

Currently, two-way traffic is only allowed for motorbikes and bicycles while cars can only travel in one direction on these streets.

The new traffic rule is expected to help promote the city’s nighttime economy in accordance with the policies of Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc and the People’s Committee of Ho Chi Minh City.
