The project will develop an integrated public transport system in five districts of Hanoi that will support the effective utilization of Hanoi Metro Line 3.
Construction has begun on the Hanoi Metro Line 3 Sustainable Urban Transport Reinforcement Project, co-financed by the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the Hanoi People’s Committee.

The project has a total investment of US$54.75 million, with a $48.95-million loan from the Clean Technology Fund (CTF), ADB, and the city's counterpart capital of $5.8 million. It is expected to be operational before 2025.
“We want to encourage passengers to stop using personal vehicles and switch to public transport,” Cuong said.

Vice Chairman of the Hanoi People’s Committee Duong Duc Tuan said, “The project aims to make Hanoi an environmentally friendly city by reducing greenhouse gas emissions.”
He asked the project management unit to coordinate with relevant agencies and contractors to carry out the project in the scheduled process and line with State and donor regulations.
The construction unit must ensure labor and traffic safety, as well as environmental sanitation, reducing the impact of construction on the lives of residents, he said.
