Published on Jul 14, 2011
Hanoi’s underground rail network will start operating by the end of 2016, French offi cials in the country have said. Thanh Nien News reported a French Embassy statement as saying that construction of the fi rst Hanoi Metro line – a 12.5km stretch connecting the city’s Hoan Kiem District to the Nhon area in east Hanoi – ould be sped up to meet the deadline. The project, which is being partly funded by the French Development Agency, will eventually see a network of five urban rail lines by 2020.
