Must have connection with urban traffic
Talking with PV Chairman of the Vietnam Automobile Transportation Association - Nguyen Van Thanh said that the most important when planning the new bus station is the connection and need to have the research and contributions of scientists, traffic experts.
According to MSc. Vu Anh Tuan - Deputy Director of Transport Planning and Management (University of Transport), has many different models in the world, large cities follow the model of inter-provincial transport and transport. download the city with the transition. Often intercity bus stations will not be located in the center but at the traffic hub.
"For bus stations in Hanoi capital, ideally located at the focal points of the belt, with the aim of inter-provincial traffic does not affect the urban traffic but still have to ensure the connection urban traffic. That means the new bus terminals must be connected to urban transport including public transport, taxis and individuals, "Tuan said.
Mr Thang said that one common point in this new bus station system is the connection points to urban railway lines in the future, the principle is reasonable, ensuring the traffic between external transportation and urban transport.
Mr. Tuan affirmed that the characteristics of the inter-provincial passenger car is to concentrate passengers and bus stations is the focus of passenger traffic, if there is no public transport but only individual vehicles will cause congestion. This means that there is a need for a connection to this type of transport at the bus terminals.
However, Tuan also noted that the allocation of streaming should be calculated. In order to do this, the State management agencies must arrange reasonable routes, for each route to each appropriate wharf, the mining capacity will be evenly between the stations. "It's a good idea to leave all areas of the bus station in that area, which will not have the same province of origin, but will have the route to the wharf near the city center and do so instead of picking up. The location of the passenger car terminal will choose the better quality.
Evaluating the timing of the current 4 bus stops, Mr. Tuan said, this is entirely dependent on the construction of new terminals and the construction of traffic connections to the terminals. "In my opinion, only two urban railways are under construction by 2020, but no new ones, as Nhon - Hanoi Railway Station can build a bus station to move down the routes. in the west or north of that position "- said Tuan.
Do not plan improvisation
"Shocked" because of the transfer of the route in April, the owner of a transport company running the route Nam Dinh - Water Lane lamented with the reporter: From the transfer from My Dinh wharf to the underwater guest is sparse because lost the number of patrons, there are only about "carrying the wind". When asked about the draft car station, he said also heard the information bar.
According to the Chairman of the Vietnam Automobile Transportation Association, if transporting the bus stops, transportation companies will have to change the routes. "The last shift has caused the shipping business urgent because of troubles, difficulties for businesses. Therefore, the planning must be predictable and resolutely keep planning, "said Mr. Thanh.
Mr. Thanh acknowledged the planning of Hanoi's southbound cars to the southern terminus, the northbound car to the northern terminus, and the connection with public transport was right, but he insisted
