The Hanoi Institute of Construction Planning has recently coordinated with Hoai Duc district, Dan Phuong district, and Ha Dong district to organize a conference announcing and handing over the red-line boundary profile of a new Ring Road from Thang Long Boulevard to National Highway No. 6.

Ring Road No. 3.5 is an important route in the capital, passing through the districts of Dong Anh, Bac Tu Liem, Hoai Duc, Ha Dong, Thanh Tri, and Gia Lam, and lying between Ring Road No. 3 and the future Ring Road No. 4. The new Ring Road will help ease traffic congestion on Ring Road No. 3 in Hanoi’s west.

Ring Road No. 3.5 has a length of about 6.7 km from Thang Long Boulevard to National Highway No. 6, passing through Hoai Duc and Ha Dong districts. It is an urban level road with a typical cross-section scale from 42 - 63 meters and has six lanes.

According to the plan, there will be four main grade separation junctions along the highway (intersections where traffic routes cross at different heights), including the interchange with Thang Long Boulevard, existing railway intersections, and the intersection of To Huu Road and National Highway No. 6. Metro Line No. 7 will also run along the route.

The official hand over is an important part of the process, creating the legal basis for construction investment projects around the planned area, among which are three new urban areas - S1, S2 and S3 - which will be built in the districts of Dan Phuong and Hoai Duc.

Along the route there are also five other grade separation junctions at intersections on the West Thang Long axis - National Highway No. 32, the Ho Tay - Ba Vi axis, and the southern inter-regional road of the S2 urban area and Thang Long Boulevard.

Upon completion, Ring Road No 3.5 is expected to create a new wave of investment, expanding the real estate market in the west and the north of the capital. Improvements in transport infrastructure will also stimulate real estate businesses to continue pouring money into this area of Hanoi.
