VNRE - The Ministry of Construction submitted a project on “Master plan of Hanoi by 2030 and a vision to 2050” early March. The project is aimed to develop Hanoi into a capital city of green space, civilisation and modernisation. On the sidelines of the government’s press conference on March, Deputy Minister of Construction Nguyen Dinh Toan said presented the project.

Toan said the project proposed suitable solutions to develop Hanoi on a total area of 3,300 square kilometres.

Urban structuring

The administrative centre of Hanoi from now to 2030 will be located at My Dinh, Hoa Lac and developed along West Lake-Ba Vi axis. In the 2030-2050, the municipal administrative centre will be moved to Ba Vi and the centre in My Dinh will be further expanded.

Urban structure will be changed with the development of core, satellite and ecological urban areas such as Hoa Lac, Xuan Mai, Quoc Oai, Phu Xuyen and Chuc Son. The city will also develop old urban areas in Son Tay, Soc Son, Dong Anh, Gia Lam and Me Linh. Among those, the construction of Hoa Lac urban area is the most feasible. The future urban area will receive a land fund for building an administrative centre.

Soc Son, Long Bien and Gia Lam urban areas will be re-planned with green and water space.

Transport pressure

The city’s transport infrastructure system in the near future has been appropriately planned to ensure people’s business demand and remove the gap between Hanoi and the old province of Ha Tay. Construction on Lang-Hoa Lac will be completed this year, expected to boost the city’s socio-economic development. I think that Hanoi’s transport pressure not only depends on where to put the administrative centre but also other factors such as accommodation and jobs.

The transport infrastructure system will be developed in the north and the south.

Paying attention to green corridor

The project plans to build a green corridor accounting for 68 per cent of the city’s natural area, to project important places like Ba Vi Mountain and Huong Tich and Soc Son regions. The corridor along Day, Tich and Ca Lo rivers aims to control development of nucleus and satellite urban areas.

The green belt along the Nhue River will form a buffer zone to distinguish between the core historical urban area and the expanded part of nucleus urban areas on belt road IV. The city will not develop residential areas along the belt, instead of building villages preservation villages and public works.

Regarding the green space, land for growing green trees in the city will increase by from 2-3 m2 per person to 10-15m2 per person.

Moving to social works to suburb

Big hospitals such as Bach Mai and Viet Duc will face overload if they are kept unchanged like presently, Therefore, the project proposes new locations for these hospitals named Viet Duc 2, Viet Duc 3 or Bach Mai 2 and Bach Mai 3.

Universities will also be moved to suburban areas. National University will be built on a site of 1,000 hectares in Hoa Lac. Many other universities and scientific centres will be located here. The city will also put some universities in Phu Xuyen, Soc Son and Gia Lam. Old universities will be considered for partial function change and narrowing their training scale.

Hanoi and its surrounding areas now lack entertainment areas. Thus, the Ministry of Construction is instructing the city’s concerned agencies to allocate land for these areas.
