The Hanoi People’s Committee has approved the feasibility report for a project to develop a road tunnel passing through the Red River dyke system and Tran Quang Khai Street in Hoan Kiem District with at an estimated cost of VND100 billion (US$4.3 million).

As per the feasibility report, the road tunnel project, connecting Tran Nguyen Han and Chuong Duong Do Streets, will allow both pedestrians and vehicles to pass through when it is in place. 

The project is expected to help ease traffic congestion in the area and ensure safety for road users.

The investor of the project is the People’s Committee of Hoan Kiem District. 

The tunnel project was designed to be 18.25 meters wide, 3.2 meters high, and 15.7 meters long.

The outside of the body and arches of the tunnel will be decorated to match the surrounding architecture.

Two lanes of the elevated section of Tran Quang Khai Street passing through the peak of the tunnel will be expanded. 

The elevated section of the street will be connected to Chuong Duong Do Street and a section of Tran Quang Khai Street on the ground. 

The project will be conducted from 2022 to 2024.

The tunnel project was originally meant to be completed on October 10, 2019 to celebrate the capital’s liberation (October 10, 1954) when the People’s Committee of Hoan Kiem District was chosen as the investor in 2018. 

On October 19, 2015, the Hanoi administration issued a statement negotiating with the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development on the design of the tunnel project linking Tran Nguyen Han and Chuong Duong Do Streets. 

The project was planned to be mainly developed southward to minimize site clearance.
