The northern bank of the Red river is designed to be a new and modern urban area.

As Hanoi’s authorities have approved the urban area planning for the northern bank of the Red river, many experts say this will be a great opportunity for urban development in the area, helping reduce overpopulation in the downtown in the future, Kinhtedothi.vn reported.

According to Hanoi’s Construction Master Plan till 2030 with a vision to 2050 approved by the prime minister, the northern bank of the Red river is designed to be a new and modern urban area.

Based on the general planning, the municipal government has prepared and approved many planning sub-projects in this area as a basis for future investments in a number of important works such as Nhat Tan-Noi Bai axis (along Vo Nguyen Giap avenue), T2 terminal of Noi Bai International Airport, Nhat Tan bridge, Hoang Sa-Truong Sa avenue, among others.

These works have gradually built up a modern urban profile in the northern region of the Red river, including Dong Anh district.

Vice Chairman of the Dong Anh district People's Committee Nguyen Thi Tam said that the urban area planning was approved with the expectation of reducing overpopulation in Hanoi’s downtown to 0.8 million people from 1.26 million.

Besides, this is an opportunity for Dong Anh district to attract competent investors for construction projects in the district by 2025, Tam noted.

To help the northern bank of the Red river develop comprehensively and quickly to attract more people to settle in the area, it is important to upgrade transport infrastructure. Hanoi has recently announced the architectural plan of Tu Lien bridge, a modern bridge that will connect Hanoi-Thai Nguyen highway, Ring Road No.3, urban areas of Dong Anh district with Hanoi’s downtown.

Deputy Minister of Construction Nguyen Dinh Toan emphasized that the current solutions and policies for easing Hanoi's population density are not effective in dealing with the increasing population density in Hanoi’s downtown and the booming of high-rise buildings.

With Nhat Tan bridge and the to-be-built Tu Lien bridge, Dong Anh district would be more accessible from Hanoi’s downtown and therefore, it is feasible for Hanoi downtown’s residents to move to Dong Anh district, Toan said.
