Many residents in Hanoi's Ha Dong District are complaining about the streets being polluted by overloaded constructions trucks.


Construction truck spotted on Nguyen Thanh Binh Street

According to the people living along Nguyen Thanh Binh Street, they have seen a large number of trucks carrying mud and soil travel even during banned hours. Those trucks were always overloaded and weren't covered. As the result, waste and construction materials fell onto the streets. When it rains, the 300-metre section became muddy because of all the waste materials.

A sign has already been put up on Nguyen Thanh Binh, banning trucks that weigh over 1.5 tonnes from operating from 6 am to 9 pm. However, it is largely ignored.

Most of those trucks pick up waste materials from a construction site near La Khe Bridge. The overloaded trucks operating on the streets, especially during rush hours, have raised public concerns about polluted streets and traffic hazards.

"My daughter often goes home on this street and I'm scared. The sand fell down from the uncovered truck and hurt my eyes," said a motorbike driver. "Urbanisation shouldn't be allowed to affect daily lives like this. I wonder where the police are."
