Hanoi to pilot walking streets from early 2012


The Hanoi Department of Transport has submitted a pilot plan of organising some walking streets around Hoan Kiem District to the city People’s Committee for approval.

The pilot plan aims to preserve tangible and intangible culture, in association with developing tourism and trade in the Hoan Kiem District. The department also hopes to sustain the specific cultural beauty and cityscape of the capital city.

Streets chosen to begin this experiment are Hang Ngang, Hang Dao, Hang Duong, Dong Xuan, the area around Hoan Kiem Lake, Le Lai, Le Thach, Trang Tien (from Hang Khay to Ngo Quyen).

According to the plan, the walking streets are expected to open for walkers from 6 am on Saturday to 10 pm on Sunday.

If the pilot plan is approved by the city People’s Committee, the Hanoi Department of Transport will organise the walking streets from January 1st, 2012. (Source: CPV)
