Bây giờ xây đường hầm không là vấn đề nữa, người ta có thể xây khách sạn dưới đáy biển th́ mấy chuyện này không thành vấn đề. Tuy nhiên chi phí để bảo dưỡng, duy tŕ hoạt động th́ tốn kém hơn đường trên cao. Tại sao người ta lựa chọn xây đường hầm mà không chọn xây đường trên cao? Về mỹ quan hay về vấn đề ǵ?

HCM City (VNA) – Ground was broken in Ho Chi Minh City on February 21 for its first metro, which will link the downtown area with District 9. The 19.7 km route was expected to be up and running by 2014, said Tran Thi Anh Nguyet, deputy head of the HCM City Urban Railway Authority.
Any updates? Has there actually been any construction?

100 years is a slogan for Vietnam to become powerful

100 years to become rich
100 years to finish a project
100 years to be modernized
100 years to invent a car
100 years to be this
100 years to be that
.... definitely, this metro will be in operation in 100 years

Well I hopefor everyones health and economic status that the metro gets built well before 15 years!

Does no one living in Saigon/HCM know if work has began as reported in the VNA article from february? (Of course the VNA is not always that accurate when it comes to dates and figures).

Good news for hanoi: Long Thanh int airport will be delayed (at least 2-3 years), in order for the gov to gather all the capital money to invest in Noi Bai 2 terminal in hanoi first, while they a few years back promised to focus on completing Long Thanh as soon as possible to lift up the economy in the south.

The gov is EXTREMELY good in making promises, but keeping them...i don't know.

I was back in HCM this last week and still nothing seems to have happened on the subway front unless someone in HCM has some new information.

Perhaps it really will take 100 years!

I dream about taking a metro train in Saigon one day, this city needs a full metro system and it needs it quick. The first line is due to running in 2014, 5 years away, I hate to think of the Saigon traffic in 5 years time.

Does anyone how they are getting on with the first station in Suoi tien?

I don't understand why they waste money building a metro line from Ben thanh to suoi ten. a metro system is more important in the business district than in the outskirt of town. It seems like District 1 only has 1 metro station. There should be metro lines running under Nguyen Hue Bolevard, Nguyen Thi Minh khai, and Le loi street as they seem to be the areas where most office buildings are located. the subway system was designed to serve business commuters, not amusement parks visitors. tsk..tsk..tsk.

and why build a metro line in the undeveloped district 2; district 1 had always been the most attractive spot for developers and will likely continue to be so. Vietnam doesn't have that many companies, most of which have already developed their headquarters either in district 7 or 1. District 2 will just turn out to be another eye-sore urban slum filled with commie-style concrete buildings and boxy apartment blocks.

I agree 100%, but I think it's down to cost, the stations would have to be built underground and building underground stations is very expencive, I mean really expencive they often require demolition and rebuilding of buildings above ground too. $1.09 billion is not a lot of money in terms of a new metro line, the long awaited crossrail project in the UK is 1 new line costing £16 billion GBP that's about $24 billion dollars, a lot of that cost is for building the deep level underground stations.



---------------------------------------------------------------

Here are some recent news items.

News - Seventy percent of pre-construction work on the Ben Thanh - Suoi Tien metro project's depot in HCM City has been completed. This is part of the city's first underground rail system.

Construction of the entire metro is expected to cost US$1.09 billion. The metro's 19.7km route has been designated to run from the Ben Thanh Market in District 1, along the Dien Bien Phu Street in Binh Thanh District and the Ha Noi Highway, to Long Binh station.

Tran Thi Anh Nguyet, deputy head of the HCM City Urban Railway Project Management Unit (URPMU), said the bidding invitation for three main sub-projects would be finished this month.

They include a 2.6km subway from Ben Thanh to Ba Son; a 17.1 km elevated track; and rails and cars. Construction will begin in early 2010. In order to keep the metro project on schedule, the HCM City People's Committee has asked relevant districts and agencies to speed up land clearance.

The People's Committees of districts 1, 2, 9, Binh Thanh and Thu But will be mainly responsible for ensuring that land is ready for construction by June 30.

Eighty percent of the funds for the project will be official development assistance (OD A) from Japan Bank for International Co-operation (JBIC). The remaining 20 percent will be funded by the City. The metro route is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2013.

It will then be tested for six months before running officially in 2014. When fully operational, the metro will carry some 526,000 passengers daily, which would significantly help ease traffic congestion in the city.

----------------------------------------------------------------

News - Hong Kong-based consultancy MVA Asia Umited has submitted plans for Ho Chi Minh City''s second metro route.

The estimated US1.25 billion rail route will run 11.2 km from Ben Thanh Market in the city center to the Tham Luong area in northwestern District 12.

MVA''s report contained financial plans as well as a proposed route. The HCMC Urban Railway Management Board said it would raise enough money for the project by the end of next year and finish the project by 2015.

The first metro system in the city, which connects Ben Thanh Market with Long Binh Ward in District 9 to the northeast, is under construction and set for completion in 2013.

City seeks Spanish loans for subways

Sunday, 2/8/2009, 02:39 Vietnam (GMT+7)

By Song Nguyen - The Saigon Times Daily

HCMC - HCMC will add three subways to the list of projects to use Spanish loans this year, said a source of the HCMC Management Authority for Urban Railways.

In a statement issued by the Government Office last month, Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung approved a HCMC proposal to put the fourth subway project on the list of top-priority projects to be financed by Spanish and Asian Development Bank (ADB) loans this year.

The fourth subway, also known as Route 4, will connect Ben Cat Bridge in Go Vap District in the north with Nguyen Van Linh Boulevard in District 7 in the south.

The PM also allowed the city to hold negotiations with Spain over financing for two other subways, Saigon-Can Giuoc and Ba Queo-Phu Lam.

An official of the railway authority told the Daily on Thursday that the city wanted to raise funds from Spain’s official development assistance and ADB loans for the rail line linking Go Vap District and District 2.

This is also the outcome of a meeting between leading Spanish companies and the city’s vice chairman Nguyen Thanh Tai in HCMC last July. At the meeting, these companies showed strong interest in working with HCMC over metro development.

The Spanish companies said they developed many metro projects around the world so they would be able to find appropriate solutions to financing the projects in the city, the source said.

The fourth subway, with a length of around 14 km for the main line and 2.3 km for the feeder-line, will require around US$1.04 billion.

Meanwhile, Route 5 will have a total length of 15 km, starting form Can Giuoc Coach Station in District 8 and ending at the Saigon Bridge. The 6-km Route 6 will connect Ba Queo in Tan Binh District and Phu Lam in District 6.

HCMC will need around US$900 million for developing the Saigon-Can Giuoc and US$320 million for the latter. The city also plans to seek aid from Spain to carry out surveys of the two routes.

The city’s relevant agencies are making preparations and complete the formulation of detailed development plans for two other urban railroads, routes 2 and 3a. They will have a total length of 27 kilometers. Ben Thanh-Tham Luong line will require US$1.25 billion and Ben Thanh-Mien Tay Coach Station US$880 million.

Under the city’s development master plan to 2020, there will be seven subway lines – 1, 2, 3a, 3b, 4, 5 and 6, with a combined length of 107 km. US$5-6 billion will be needed for them.

The city’s fast population growth requires the city to develop mass rapid transport. A survey shows the population of HCMC would reach 20 to 22 million by 2020, compared to about seven million by the end of 2008.

In a nutshell: the city council and related governmental agencies will try everything they could to have a portion of city’s metro system, namely Route 1: Bến Thành – Suối Tiên, completed by 2013 and operational by 2014.

What made you say that? Did I miss something?

The article only mentions that Spanish government is asking to be a part of the project. Nowhere does it say that this metro system would be modeled after the one they have in Spain, let alone built by it.
