F1 construction work causes congestion in Hanoi

The construction of the F1 race track is causing traffic chaos along Le Quang Dao Street in Hanoi.

After the fence was put up the traffic on Le Quang Dao Street has become much more difficult and congestion often occurs during rush hours. Many vehicles use the pavements, while other travellers are confused and don't know which route they should take.

Trucks and passenger buses have been banned from Le Duc Tho, Le Quang Dao and Me Tri-Le Quang Dao-Chau Van Liem intersection from October 19 to December 11. They will be directed to Thang Long Avenue, Trinh Van Bo, and Tran Huu Duc.

Cars can use Le Duc Tho-Ham Nghi-Pham Hung-Thang Long Avenue and Le Quang Dao route.
