Many streets in Hanoi on Friday suffered heavy traffic congestion for hours from early afternoon as a drizzle hit the capital city.

It took commuters 20-30 minutes to travel on the route of Ton Duc Thang Street - Nguyen Luong Bang Street - Tay Son Street - Nguyen Trai Street.

Those major streets connecting Dong Da and Thanh Xuan Districts with several intersections and roundabout, were packed with heavy traffic volume, especially at the O Cho Dua Roundabout.

The same congestion happened on Lang Street, and the intersections of Nguyen Trai - Khuat Duy Tien Streets and Xa Dan - Pham Ngoc Thach Streets.

Despite the presence of traffic police officers, it was not until around 7:00 pm that the congestion became gradually more relaxed.
