Authorities in Hanoi on Thursday initiated the construction of an underpass costing more than VND770 billion (US$32.2 million).

The groundbreaking of the underpass at the intersection of Ring Road No. 2.5 and Giai Phong Street in Hoang Mai District was organized by the municipal People’s Committee on Thursday.

This is the fifth underpass project that has been implemented in Hanoi since 2009.

The construction is projected to cost VND778 billion ($32.5 million), funded by the capital budget.

Stretching 890 meters, the underpass will have a total of four lanes upon completion. It is expected to come on stream in 30 months.

The underpass is one of the key projects in Hanoi during the 2021-25 period, aimed at mitigating congestion at the intersection of Ring Road No. 2.5 and Giai Phong Street, chairman of the Hanoi People’s Committee Tran Sy Thanh said at the groundbreaking ceremony.

On Wednesday, Le Van Luong Underpass was officially opened to traffic after nearly two years of construction.

Costing almost VND700 billion ($29.3 million), the underground passage is aimed at alleviating traffic jams at the intersection of Le Van Luong Street - To Huu Street and Khuat Duy Tien Street - Ring Road No. 3 in Thanh Xuan District.
