Hanoi to spend $125 million to beautify its face

Published: 01/06/2011 05:00



In the next five years,
Hanoi will bury electric wires and telecom cables on many streets, beautify the
area around the Hoan Kiem Lake, repair flower gardens and install 120 public
toilets at the cost of over VND2.5 trillion ($125 million).

According to a
program to beautify the city in 2011-2015 period, Hanoi will carry out 121
projects, including: burying hanging electric wires and cables in some major
streets, beautifying the area around the Dong Kinh Nghia Thuc square, around
the Hoan Kiem Lake, upgrading infrastructure facilities of some areas, repairing
flower gardens and the street light system, installing 10,000 dustbins and
building 120 public toilets.

Of the over VND2.5
trillion of capital, the city will contribute VND1.56 trillion, VND440 billion
from district governments and over VND400 billion from other sources.

Last year, to
welcome Hanoi’s 1000th anniversary, Hanoi spent hundreds of
billions of dong to re-pave many streets, but the new pavements were quickly
broken after several months.

Some big works that
opened for the public last year – Hoa Binh Park,
Thang Long Avenue, Hanoi
Museum – have degraded
very quickly.
