Detailed plan

If the plan is put into action, the river will be widened under the Thang Long bridge and north of the Chuong Duong bridge. The river will also be narrowed at some sections to ensure it is 4,200 metres across at its widest and 1,300 metres at its narrowest.

The readjustment of the river beds would improve flood drainage and make it easier to transport goods and use the river for tourism services, said To Anh Tuan, director of the Ha Noi Planning and Architecture Department.

In addition, a new system of stone embankments and dykes would be built to avoid land erosion, said Tuan.

Under the plan, 12 environmental and cultural preservation areas and 59 other projects including green space, pedestrian walkways, parking lots, entertainment centres, and a sports stadium will be built along the banks of the Red River.

The projects will be integrated and connected with the rest of the city.

The urban zones, which will include trade and commercial centres, will be set up in conformity with traditional craft villages.

However, the Ha Noi Party committee secretary reminded relevant authorities to be aware of public opinion and consult experts since the plan would have enormous consequences for the 170,000 people who are now living along the banks of the Red River.

It would be necessary to have suitable policies to relocate households, said Pham Quang Nghi, Ha Noi Party committee secretary.

About 4,500 households living between Chem and the Thang Long bridge will be relocated by 2012. About 23,900 households living from the Thang Long bridge to the Thanh Tri bridge will be relocated between 2013 and 2016, and 6,700 between the Thanh Tri bridge and the Bat Trang Pottery village from 2016 to 2020.
