Hải Phòng builds infrastructure for new urban area near river

Construction of technical infrastructure for a new urban area north of the Cấm River in the port city of Hải Phòng officially began on Thursday.

The project, which has total investment of nearly VNĐ10 trillion (US$444 million), is expected to be ready in two years.

The project consists of four main items including technical infrastructure systems for the urban area in the north of Cấm River, main traffic systems of the urban area, the dyke on the left side of Cấm River and the 1,138 metre Hoàng Văn Thụ bridge.

Speaking at the ground-breaking ceremony, Secretary of Hải Phòng city’s Party Committee Lê Văn Thành emphasised that the project is important to implement a Politburo Resolution and the Prime Minister’s decision as well as meeting the aspiration of the local Party, Government and people in developing Hải Phòng.

With the construction of the new urban area, Hải Phòng strives to become a type-1 city and a modern centre at the central level. — VNS
