Many road users have not been well informed of alternative routes after the Pasteur Street section between Han Thuyen and Alexandre de Rhodes streets and the Le Duan Street section between Pham Ngoc Thach and Nam Ky Khoi Nghia streets were closed.
Many office workers in the downtown area worry that traffic congestion will occur during peak hours until May 6 when the road sections are blocked to make room for preparations for the 40th anniversary of the city’s liberation on April 30.
Nguyen Thanh Chung, director of the HCMC Department of Transport, told the Daily that the road blockage for more than one month was proposed by the unit in charge of organizing celebrations of this important event, not by the department.
Chung said in addition to setting up a stand in the blocked area, the unit needs much time for security arrangement.
After the Government approved a plan for holding activities to mark the 40th year of Vietnam’s reunification on April 30 late last year, the Ministry of Public Affairs held a meeting on security measures for the event.
