HCMC prepares to lease sidewalks on nearly 900 roads

December 28, 2023

HCMC – The HCMC Department of Transport has listed nearly 900 roads across the city that will serve as a basis for district authorities to lease sidewalks. The Department of Transport will be responsible for issuing permits and collecting fees for roads under its management, while district-level authorities will handle roads under their jurisdiction. Initially, sidewalk fee collection will begin on selected routes in accordance with new regulations governing the management and use of sidewalks and part of roadsides. Sidewalks available for leasing must be at least three meters wide, with half of that space reserved for pedestrians. Leasing arrangements will only be permitted on roads wide enough to accommodate two lanes of traffic in one direction.
