The event was held to celebrate the 68th anniversary of Hanoi’s Liberation Day (October 10, 1954 - October 10, 2022). The tunnel is hoped to reduce traffic jam at the intersection, one of the worst in Hanoi .
It will promote a plan of expanding public transport network in the city, build a database on road infrastructure and means of transport, install camera systems and develop an online digital map for traffic management in urban areas.
The 475m tunnel, the fourth of its kind in the city, is located at the intersection of Le Van Luong, Khuat Duy Tien and To Huu streets. It is one of the city’s key transport works.
With a total investment of nearly 700 billion VND (29.3 million USD), construction on this tunnel started on October 2, 2020./.
