Workers began road cleaning along the To Lich River in Hanoi on Friday afternoon in order to convert this route into a bicycle-only lane, the first of its kind in the capital city. Scheduled to commence operations on February 1, the route dedicated for bicycles will feature six parking stations and accommodate 100 regular bicycles and battery-powered bikes. Subsequently, due to an influx of motorbikes, Hanoi fenced off both ends to restrict vehicular access. Additionally, the transport department plans to pilot a second bicycle path around Hoa Binh Park and Hoang Minh Thao Street in Bac Tu Liem District. This initiative also involves sidewalk repairs and the creation of a three-meter-wide priority path for two-way traffic.
