NDO – An urban transport development project was inaugurated in the northern port city of Hai Phong on May 3.

The event took place on the occasion of the 45th anniversary of Southern Liberation and National Reunification Day (April 30), the 130th birth anniversary of President Ho Chi Minh (May 19) and the 65th anniversary of the liberation of Hai Phong.

Accordingly, gross investment for the project is US$251.55 million, including over US$175 million in international development assistance.

Construction sites included An Duong, Kien An, Le Chan, Ngo Quyen and Hai An districts. The construction period was from December 2013 to February 2020.

The project is expected to help reduce the travel time between the eastern part of Hai Phong (Hai An district) and the western part of the city (An Duong district).

The new route will also increase connectivity between urban districts such as Kien An, Le Chan and Ngo Quyen, as well as shorten travel time from Vinh Bao, Tien Lang and An Lao districts to the inner city area, particularly in relation to freight transport between Hai Phong city and localities in the northern region.
