The Ha Noi Urban Line 3 Extension the second phase of the priority urban rail lines in Ha Noi proposed in the urban transport masterplan, which was approved by the Prime Minister in July 2008. The initial stage, comprising 12.5 km of line 3 with 12 stations (eight elevated and four underground) is presently under construction. The second phase, the extension is expected to commence from the current underground end of the first stage of Line 3 at Ha Noi railway station to Hoang Mai. Section, which is located to the south of the city centre. The estimated length is 8km, and alignment would follow an easterly direction for about 1.5km and then a south/southeast direction for the remaining 6.5km. The consultant preparing the feasibility studies has initially considered 18 alignment options, of which 3 are being finalized for government's consideration for choosing the most suitable final alignment. The studied options have considered combinations of elevated and underground sections.

The studied options have considered combinations of elevated and underground sections. The consultant is expected to submit its final alignment options and stations location report by end May 2017. Once the preferred alignment has been chosen, the studies, jointly financed by ADB and Ha Noi People's Committee, will continue with technical, economic, financial, social and environmental assessments, and project preparation, with completion of the studies expected in end 2019.|
|Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy||
The Government of Viet Nam recognizes that inadequate transport infrastructure is a significant barrier to continued economic growth, especially in the primary urban centers of Ha Noi and Ho Chi Minh City. Without investment in urban public transport to support a major modal shift from private transport, economic growth in cities will be constrained and degradation of the urban environment will accelerate. The Viet Nam Socio-Economic Development Plan for 2011-2015 supports investment in public transport as a means to promote economic growth and protect the environment through a low carbon growth path. ADB's Viet Nam country partnership and strategy supports the government's investment program to improve urban transport infrastructure and reduce transportation costs.
Urban transport in Ha Noi is rapidly evolving, having shifted from bicycles to motorcycles in the last 10 years, and now increasingly to cars. Private vehicles dominate urban transportation, with motorcycles accounting for about an 80% share, directly contributed to worsening congestion and poor road safety. Traffic planning and management is weak, resulting in ineffective traffic control. If the number of private vehicles in Ha Noi continues to increase at a rate of 9% per year, and motorbike owners continue to convert to cars, more frequent traffic gridlock will occur and increase in the project area.
Ha Noi''s public transport system consists of an inefficient bus network that cannot compete with private transport modes, especially motorcycles. However, new policy, institutional and regulatory measures are being implemented to encourage greater use of public transport and the public transport system is expected to be improved within the next 5 years. City authorities have recognized that investment in metro infrastructure combined with major reforms are essential for an integrated public transport system.
Ha Noi''s Urban Transport Master Plan (HUTMP) proposes an extensive six line metro network, with phase 1 of four lines under implementation and expected to be operational by the end of 2020. Phase 1 is expected to support an increase in public transport ridership to 15% from a current level of less than 5%. The extension of Line 3 under the Project will directly increase ridership on Metro Line 3, plus ridership on other connected lines and increase public transport usage along the corridor by over 10%. The city has established an operations and maintenance (O&M) company for all metro line operations in 2015. Additionally a public transport authority will be established by 2016 and be responsible for regulating, integrating and planning the future development of all modes of public transport, including metro lines, buses and taxis. ADB will support public transport integration, accessibility and coordination improvements, including implementation of necessary policy, regulatory and institutional measures to encourage transport users to shift from private transport modes, including measures to ensure the necessary shift of motorcycle users to public transport.

|During Project Design||
National, city, and commune government officials, development partners, Steering Committee for poverty reduction, small business owners, affected community representatives, and relevant mass organizations (CSOs) such as Vietnam Women's Union and Youth Union. City Authorities and metro implementation authority will be closely involved in the project design preparation. During preparation of the feasibility studies and implementation of the resettlement plan and Environmental Management Plan, individual and group consultations will be undertaken with affected people across a range of sites in urban areas. A participatory approach will be used to determine the location and design of some project features, such as station entrance location, underpasses and footbridges for local communities.
The ensuing project will empower poor people through provision of affordable transport service. For those with mobility impairments, the project design features will provide them with enhanced mobility compared to other forms of transport. The project design during the PPTA stage will incorporate the results of consultations with transport users from a variety of profiles, including poor and other marginalized groups, especially on issues of station and ancillary infrastructure design and fare regimes.
The key relevant CSOs are mass organizations, including the Women's Union, Youth Union and Fatherland Front.
|During Project Implementation||As of March 2017, initial survey works on buildings, residential areas and technical utilities along Metro line 3 has been completed, as well as the survey for station accessibility and integration improvements. Initial examination were done on the environmental, social, gender, and land impacts/ resettlement aspects. Initial Consultation process with project stakeholders is ongoing and partially completed.|
