HÀ NỘI — The pavement of about 100 streets in Hà Nội will be replaced with natural stones this year instead of conventional concrete bricks.
The natural stones will be used along streets where electrical wires and telecommunication cables are buried underground.
For example, some eligible streets in Ba Đình District include Chu Văn An, Nguyễn Cảnh Chân, Hoàng Văn Thụ, Lê Hồng Phong, Trần Phú, Hoàng Diệu and Nguyễn Thái Học – Kim Mã.
Đống Đa, Tây Hồ, Hai Bà Trưng, Hoàn Kiếm, Hoàng Mai and Hà Đông districts will also have streets with natural stone pavements.
The city People’s Committee asked relevant agencies to select proper materials and identify the origins of stones that will be used.
Terrazzo tiles and concrete bricks will also used for other pavement along streets in the city.
By the end of 2016, many inner districts in Hà Nội started resurfacing work on existing “degraded pavements” with slabs of natural stone that authorities claimed would be “sturdy for the next 50-70 years”.
The city planned to repave 936 streets in 12 districts by 2020 as a measure to enhance the appearance of the city.
However, in late 2017 and early 2018, visible cracks and damage to the newly laid pavements along many streets were reported, causing residents to question the quality of the materials used. Investigations found unclear designs and improper paving techniques caused the damages. — VNS
