Phan Bội Châu Street in Hội An is planned to be a walking street and arts zone. — VNS Photo Công Thành HỘI AN — The ancient city of Hội An plans to name Phan Chu Trinh Street as a new pedestrian area to ease traffic congestion and overloading of infrastructure. Vice Chairman of the city’s People’s Committee Nguyễn Văn Sơn confirmed the decision to Việt Nam News, saying a pilot project will start in March before expanding the walking area to other surrounding streets of Cao Hồng Lãnh, Bạch Đằng, Nguyễn Huệ, Hoàng Diệu and Phan Bội Châu. Vehicles will be banned from these streets from 6pm to 9.30pm every day – the most crowded time for visitors. Sơn said the project, which began in the city in 2002, has helped preserve the tranquil atmosphere and clean air in the city, while tourists feel safer when exploring the area. Between 2017 and 2019, the city expanded pedestrian areas to the streets of Trần Phú, Hội An market, Công Nữ Ngọc Hoa and the Hoài River Square. Visitors pass Hội An market. The ancient city of Hội An plans to add more walking streets to create a clean and fresh space for tourists. —… Read full this story
