Goethe-Institut Hanoi will host a conference about planning and building a public transportation system for Hanoi on June 23 from 8.30a.m. to 12p.m.
The dramatic increase in the number of motorcycles and cars on the capital city's streets has considerably slowed traffic flow over the last several years.
During rush hour, most main roads are blocked, preventing buses, the only means of public transportation in the city, from moving.
A press release from Goethe-Institut says a functional traffic system with well connected and expandable means of mass transportation is the key for Hanoi to become a modern metropolis.
In Thursday's conference, experts and traffic planners will present long term solutions and concepts to solve Hanoi's traffic problems.
Goethe-Institut Hanoi is located at 56-58 Nguyen Thai Hoc street. Admission to the conference is free and open to the public.
