The government ofHCMC has requested the Ministry of Transport to relocate ports in Truong Tho Ward in the city’s Thu Duc District in the next two years to reduce environmental pollution and ensure traffic safety on Hanoi Highway and Metro Line No.1.

Traffic to and from the ports in Truong Tho Ward often causes congestion and accidents on Hanoi Highway, said the city government.

In May last year, the city also wrote to the ministry requesting a freeze on further investment in Truong Tho area’s ports as these ports are near residential areas and environmentally unfriendly, and do not ensure traffic safety and public security.
