The railway infrastructure of Hanoi and Giap Bat train stations will be relocated to make room for the Yen Vien-Ngoc Hoi metro line, the transport ministry says.

In accordance with the Law on Railway Transport, the Hanoi People’s Committee will be the main investor for the Yen Vien-Ngoc Hoi metro line. The Ministry of Transport will invest in the national railway while Hanoi will invest in the depot area for the project.

The transport ministry has instructed the Railway Project Management Unit to hand over documents on the Yen Vien-Ngoc Hoi project to Hanoi authorities to speed up the process.

As the stations will change from being national terminals to metro stations, the transport ministry will cooperate with relevant authorities to relocate the national railway infrastructure at the Hanoi and Giap Bat stations to make room for the Yen Vien-Ngoc Hoi project.

The Yen Vien-Ngoc Hoi project, spanning 28.7 km, would have two new railway bridges over the Red River and the Duong River to replace the Long Bien Bridge and the Duong Bridge.

The North-South Railway would begin from the Ngoc Hoi Station instead of the Hanoi Train Station.
