Vehicles driving through the Bac Thang Long - Noi Bai toll fee station, which Hanoi is planning to turn into the greeting gate for its 1,000th birthday in October.
The government has planned to temporarily transform a toll station into the greeting gate for Hanoi's 1,000th anniversary, local newswire Vnexpress said Monday.
The city People's Committee chairman Nguyen The Thao has ordered the relevant agencies to make specific plans so it can ask the Ministry of Transport to close the Bac Thang Long Noi Bai station.
Thao also asked the agencies to clean up the Thang Long Noi Bai Highway that runs through the station, and the buildings and trees along the street.
The Department of Architecture and Planning was asked to decorate all gates leading to Hanoi and cooperate with the Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism to set up billboards promoting the event along roads leading to the gates.
