The national holiday will be celebrated next month.

Leaders of Hanoi Police said that every year around the festival, the number of vehicles rises significantly as people travel home. Many roads suffer heavy traffic congestion, especially in big cities.

Nguyen Trai Road leading from Dong Da District to Ha Dong District is one of the widest roads in the capital city, but traffic jams happen regularly during the new year celebrations.

Traffic congestion means that many are unable to make it to work on time, including Government workers and leaders of ministries. Police in the capital city often receive reports about the issue, said Colonel Nguyen Van Vien, deputy director of Hanoi Police.

Vien added that in addition to infrastructure improvements, this year the municipal police will assign more officers to direct traffic.

The 500 students will start work in the next two weeks. They will help police direct traffic and ensure order and safety on the roads. — VNS
