All vehicles will be prevented from using some sections of the two central streets of Hang Gai and Cau Go on certain hours on Fridays and at weekends, according to the Hanoi Department of Transport.
The ban, to start on October 13, will restrict vehicles from circulating from 7pm to midnight on the two streets from Luong Van Can to Dinh Liet street.
The department has ordered the city’s traffic management board to install signs in the banned streets.
It also asked the city’s transport inspectorate to cooperate with road and railway traffic police as well as Hoan Kiem district to guide vehicles moving towards the city centre.
Advice on bus routes affected will be passed on to passengers.
