The Hanoi transport authority is currently seeking approval from the city’s administration for a pilot plan to establish bikeways on roads along the To Lich River and in the vicinity of Hoa Binh Park, with the objective of enhancing convenience and safety for cyclists in the area.

In line with this pilot plan, which necessitates an investment of nearly VND10 billion (US$411,690), the bike paths will be integrated with public transport systems, including metro lines, bus routes, and public bike rental stations, as outlined by the municipal Department of Transport.

The Department plans to convert a 2.3-kilometer-long and four-meter-wide pedestrian route along the To Lich River into a combined pedestrian and bicycle path.

The dedicated bikeway section will consist of two lanes, spanning three meters in width and running adjacent to the river.

Simultaneously, the pedestrian section will be one meter wide.

The anticipated riverside pedestrian route is expected to be connected to Lang station on the city’s Cat Linh - Ha Dong metro line and No. 8 Station of the Nhon - Hanoi Station metro line via Lang Street.

Lang Street runs parallel to the proposed pedestrian route, as mentioned by the department.

The transport authority would also set up six more public bike rental stations at bus stops along this riverine route.

The second cycle path would be located along those roads encircling Hoa Binh Park and Hoang Minh Thao Street in Bac Tu Liem District.
