Fast traffic for other roads
Ngo Tien Nam Son, a design expert, said that Nguyen Hue's new pedestrian hurdle on short-term vehicles has a lot of disturbance. A road affects many. Not only does traffic pressure be reduced to two small routes, one way is the Dong Khoi and Pasteur route, and a traffic setting for a series of hotels, restaurants and the largest commercial venue at home on this way. is also a problem to solve.
According to his son, Ho Chi Minh's home planning is visit the Nguyen Hue village, mostly to attend the festival and so not look carefully, and missed many opportunities on this route. Initially, Nguyen Hue Street has no underground parking lot, with an underground site connected to the metro line in the future. After all that needs to be made this road again due to the great street of walkers, parking space can not be central. Second, the Nguyen Hue road does not have a green green space. The path is a tough concrete garden, not environmentally friendly, and inconvenient to visitors. In addition, the walkers do not have the same connection at both sides, reducing their ability to & # 39; trade use.
The architect Pham Phu Cuong also noted that, since the arrival of Nguyen Hue Street into the street for pedestrians, the number of vehicles that were poured into Ton Duc Thang Street and Le Thanh Ton Street to & # 39 ; greatly increased. Now if the "green" is only to allow people to walk, pour the measure of methods, they need to solve a grid traffic problem.
"The biggest weakness of Ho Chi Minh City is the lack of underground transport nets, which make it more obstacle to the design of a pedestrian site, the development of a bus system can be a great deal of design Street walking, "Cuong stressed.
