Hanoi would need at least 741 hectares of clear sites for the project, covering areas in seven districts.

Hanoi identifies site clearance as the top priority to ensure the successful implementation of the Ring road No.4 project, according to the Chairman of the Hanoi People’s Committee Tran Sy Thanh.

The project, with a total length of 112.8 kilometers and investment capital of VND85.8 trillion (US$3.7 billion) would run through Hanoi (58.2 kilometers), Hung Yen (19.3 kilometers), and Bac Ninh (25.6 kilometers).

Once completed, the ring road is set to bolster regional connectivity between Hanoi and the northern provinces in the Hanoi Capital Zone.

In a recent meeting of the National Steering Committee on priority transport projects, the city’s mayor noted Hanoi would need at least 741 hectares of clear sites for the project, covering areas in seven districts.  

Thanh said Hanoi aims to hand over 70% of the clear sites for contractors by June 2023, and 100% by the end of that year.

This is to ensure the construction starts in June 2023 and is on track to be completed by 2026 as targeted by the Government, he added.

On July 5, 2022, the Hanoi Party Committee set up a Steering Committee on the construction of Ring road No.4 led by the city’s Party chief Dinh Tien Dung, with members being senior officials from Hanoi, Bac Ninh, and Hung Yen.

In early September, Hanoi’s leaders tasked seven districts with being responsible for the site clearance and resettlement works at their respective localities.

“The city requested related districts to soon relocate tombs out of the areas subject to site clearance works to the newly built cemeteries,” Thanh said.

Regarding this issue, Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh suggested Hanoi work with religious organizations to support the people in the spiritual process related to the relocation of tombs.

In addition to site clearance works, Hanoi has been working extensively with Hung Yen and Bac Ninh provinces in drafting an implementation plan for the Ring road No.4 project, especially in the preparation of sufficient supplies of construction materials.

“This is the second most important task after site clearance,” he added.

The city is scheduled to approve the project’s red-boundary lines in September, the environmental assessment report in December; and the feasibility study report in January 2023.

Under the proposal, Ring road No.4 would have a total length of 112.8 kilometers, including 103.1-kilometer of the ring road and 9.7 kilometers of an access road in the direction of the Noi Bai – Ha Long expressway.

Once completed, Ring road No.4 would consist of four lanes with 17-meter-wide for an average speed of 80 kilometers per hour.

The total investment cost of the project is VND85.8 trillion ($3.7 billion), with VND41.8 trillion ($1.8 billion) for the 2021-2025 period sourced from the state budget. Of the total, Hanoi would contribute VND22.47 trillion ($967.2 million) from its local budget, Hung Yen VND1 trillion ($43 million), and Bac Ninh VND2 trillion ($86 million).

In the subsequent five years, the project funding would continue to be allocated VND14.5 trillion ($624.2 million), with Hanoi contributing VND4 trillion ($172 million), Hung Yen VND505 billion ($21.7 million), and Bac Ninh VND1.16 trillion ($50 million).

The private sector, meanwhile, is expected to invest VND29.4 trillion ($1.26 billion).
