HCMC – The Le Van Luong-To Huu underpass in Hanoi was opened to traffic today, October 5, after two years of construction.
As one of the key traffic infrastructure projects in Hanoi, the underpass is highly expected to ease congestion at the Le Van Luong-Khuat Duy Tien-To Huu interchange and in the southwest area of the city.
The investment in the project was nearly VND700 billion, of which the construction cost was nearly VND532 billion, funded by the city’s budget.
The underpass is 475 meters long with four lanes, consisting of two 95-meter-long and 7.75-meter-wide tunnels and the 380-meter-long roads lead to the tunnels.
Rudimentary vehicles, pedestrians and vehicles with a height of more than 4.75 meters are banned from passing through the underpass, which is underneath a section of Beltway No. 3.
Work on the underpass project began in October 2020 with the cooperation of Cienco4 Group JSC, Fecon JSC and Vinh Hung Trading, Consulting and Construction JSC.
This is the fourth underpass tunnel in Hanoi to be put into operation. Before that, the Kim Lien-Xa Dan underpass was inaugurated in 2009, while the underpasses of Trung Hoa and Thanh Xuan opened to traffic in 2016.
