To Lich River was proposed by JVE to construct right into a historic – cultural – religious park and cultural establishments with a system of anti-flood underground tunnels and underground highways alongside the river under.
Today, 7/7, a scientific convention to hunt a complete answer to enhance the To Lich River in an effort to steadily flip the undertaking into actuality was organized by the Hanoi People’s Committee, the Vietnam Union of Science and Technology Associations (Vietnam Union of Science and Technology Associations). Vusta) chaired, the group passed off attracting the eye of many scientists in addition to the media.
At the seminar, Mr. Nguyen Tuan Anh, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Nhat Viet Environment Group Joint Stock Company (JVE) – the undertaking proponent, mentioned that the undertaking has 2 fundamental elements, together with:
The underground freeway system operates in two separate methods, connecting out and in at key intersections of the capital. The enormous anti-flood system consists of water assortment wells, underground drainage tunnels (positioned under the underground freeway) and large pressurization tanks.
The underground tunnel system is about 11.65km lengthy, together with assortment troughs positioned alongside one aspect of the sidewalk alongside the To Lich Historical, Cultural and Spiritual Park, then flows into 9 assortment wells organized at 9 places. alongside the river, linked by an underground tunnel with a diameter of D16.8m. The underground tunnel leads water to an enormous pressurized tank on the finish of the route (close to Thanh Liet dam).
The pressurized tank is designed to carry tens of millions of m3 of water to fulfill heavy rains with rain depth as much as 500mm. Water saved from the pressurized tank might be drained to Nhue River by a pump system with a capability of 200m3/s after the Nhue River water stage drops to make sure flood prevention.
The second part is the To Lich historic – cultural – religious park positioned above. Two present sloping rock embankments might be demolished and rebuilt into vertical embankments; to construct walkways alongside each side of the riverbed on the place of the slope of the embankment straight right down to create area for folks to stroll and train.
Beneath the promenade, it’s calculated to put overflow gates to gather water resulting in the anti-flood underground tunnel system to regulate the water stage on the river when there’s a flood or when there’s a further water supply to the river.
Cultural works reminiscent of Entity space, Monument space, Epitaph space… might be constructed on the river. Combined with which are the arch bridges connecting the 2 riverbanks with an acceptable roof curvature in order that the dragon boat carrying vacationers can shuttle under easily and simply.
According to Mr. Tuan Anh, the undertaking is not going to have an effect on the residents on each side of the river, with out having to clear the bottom in the course of the undertaking implementation; don’t slender the river mattress, don’t concretize, harden the river mattress…
In addition, the undertaking will fully resolve the stench and air pollution sources each inside and out of doors the river; contribute to fixing the flooding scenario of Hanoi and concrete site visitors issues…
Boldly turning To Lich River right into a cultural park
According to Dr. Nguyen Hoang Diep – Director of the Center for Translation, Cultural Services and Science and Technology (CTCS), the primary purpose is to resolve the air pollution downside of the To Lich River. When this difficulty has been resolved, CTCS, JVE Group and Japanese companions will proceed to construct To Lich Historical-Cultural-Spiritual Park (Vietnam-Japan Friendship Park) together with the next objects: The aid system summarizes the historical past of the dynasties, the cluster of monuments of cultural celebrities, the artwork stage, the murals, 63 cultural areas of the provinces, the inexperienced tree system…
Dr. Diep mentioned: “The To Lich River, after being renovated, will have great value in terms of politics, culture, history, tourism, and will create jobs for tens of thousands of workers. The promotion of the value of To Lich River will also be a wake-up call for many “sleeping” cultural works of the Capital.
And Dr., Architect. Dao Ngoc Nghiem – Vice Chairman of the Vietnam Urban Development Planning Association highly appreciated the idea of renovating the To Lich River into a cultural park because the river has been associated with historical events, legends and entered into poetry. music, literature and art.
Nghiem said: “The To Lich River not only carries the landscape elements of the city, but it also carries the traditional cultural elements with the function of supplying water for agriculture. If implemented, the project will not only contribute to solving environmental pollution, clean the air, clean the water flow, etc., but also make an important contribution to raising the traditional and cultural values of Hanoi. “.
After viewing the 3D design of the project, MSc. Nguyen Nu Hoang Anh (Office of the National Assembly) also said that if the project becomes a reality, the river is no longer polluted but becomes a large cultural space, Hanoi will create a miracle bearing the mark of the times. .
At the conference, scientists noted that the idea of this project is very bold and feasible, but it still needs to be discussed carefully, combining the opinions of interdisciplinary experts because of the fact that the To Lich River is meeting point of many studies, but they have not been fully implemented. The biggest reason is that there is no solution to the overall problems of the whole system.
According to architect Dao Ngoc Nghiem, since 2011, Hanoi city has approved the task of detailed planning at the scale of 1/500 on both sides of To Lich river route, in which it is required to create and promote the role of the surface. water, creating landscapes on both sides of the river, connecting the two spatial axis… However, up to now, this plan has not been implemented because the treatment of polluted water in this river has not been solved.
“The current problem is to clean up the river water before it can be exploited,” he emphasized.
Architect Dao Ngoc Nghiem believes that the To Lich Historical-Cultural-Spiritual Park project needs to inherit the strengths and weaknesses of previous works to draw experience and adapt to the current situation. , especially the issue of climate change.
He said that the idea of building an underground highway and anti-flood tunnel along the To Lich river should not be discussed in haste, but must determine specific goals and funding sources. In addition, city leaders must consider connecting the To Lich River with other rivers and lakes to increase drainage capacity and solve the problem of flooding.
Regarding cultural institutions in the park, Mr. Nghiem said that it is necessary to consult many cultural, historical and ethnographic experts to build aesthetic items.
“In the past, to erect the statue of King Ly Thai To on Hoan Kiem Lake, we consulted many experts and discussed for many years before reaching a consensus. Now, the project that has the ambition to place a series of statues of cultural celebrities of the dynasties must be studied very carefully,” he mentioned.
Agreeing with that opinion, Dr. Mai Thanh Hai (Vice President of the Vietnam-Korea Friendship Association) said that the criteria for selecting cultural icons should be carefully selected and considered.
“I think it is necessary to set up a council consisting of competent authorities, experts and scientists to select the most typical cultural celebrities of each era,” he said.
Contributing more to the project, Mr. Hai was interested in the cluster of works providing electrical energy for cultural and artistic activities of people’s daily life along both sides of the river.
“To Lich River, after renovating both the space on the ground and the underground highway system, it is necessary to have a 24-hour continuous supply of electricity. Where does that power come from while the national grid is in short supply? Therefore, the only solution is to build a solar power system,” Nghiem mentioned.
Proposals have to be researched, proposed and approached with a great orientation
Talking to the press on the sidelines of the convention, Vice Chairman of Hanoi People’s Committee Duong Duc Tuan mentioned that town has assigned duties to departments to review the above proposal. To Lich River was previously a distributary of the Red River, bringing water from the higher Red River to the Nhue River… Today’s To Lich River has its start line from Hoang Quoc Viet to the top level of Thanh Liet dam (downstream). Nhue river, the whole size is sort of 13km.
The river has fundamental water sources from West Lake, Lu river, rain water, wastewater… alongside each side of the river. In the Hanoi drainage system, the To Lich basin has a really excessive inhabitants density. Wastewater generated from every day life poured into the To Lich river system, inflicting air pollution for a few years, making the historic river a useless river.
In the method of urbanization improvement, city renovation and reconstruction, To Lich, Kim Nguu, Lu, Set rivers within the internal metropolis play a vital function within the metropolis’s basic drainage system. of historic, panorama, architectural and environmental worth.
The present standing of rivers is significantly polluted, to this point town has not had a complete answer to beat and deal with successfully and totally. Therefore, the work of city renovation, embellishment, reconstruction and improvement poses an pressing job of restoring and “reviving the To, Kim Nguu, Lu and Set rivers”.
The metropolis has assigned departments and branches to examine and evaluation the general contents of specialised technical infrastructure planning (water drainage planning) built-in within the Capital Construction General Planning; research and suggest detailed planning (1/500 scale) alongside the 2 sides of To Lich – Kim Nguu – Lu – Set rivers during which the orientation is related to options for atmosphere, panorama, site visitors, and cultural historical past. chemical, drainage, wastewater remedy…
“The building of underground tunnels mixed with site visitors to extend the drainage capability of the basin with a rainfall of 500mm is affordable within the context of local weather change and excessive climate phenomena which are taking place in the present day. . This means altering the capabilities and duties of the To Lich River within the route of turning into a panorama route within the city space.
The drainage operate of To Lich River is changed by a system of underground tunnels alongside the river. These proposed contents have to be researched, proposed by town’s departments and companies, and approached with good orientation. Even greed…
