Construction around Thang Long Royal Citadel to Be Stopped

The management board of construction project of Parliament House and Ba Dinh Hall worked with Viet Nam Archaeology Institute and the Administrative Department of National Assembly Office on May 19 about the new projects, which may caused damage to Thang Long Royal Citadel. The three sides agreed to stop the construction and pull down the newly built structures.

In the meeting, there were three important conclusions.

 Firstly, there is a confirmation that the management board of construction project made mistakes in handing over premises, causing an overlap in the management and the use of premises between Viet Nam Archaeology Institute and the Administrative Department of National Assembly Office.

Secondly, the Administrative Department of National Assembly Office would be responsible for the  termination and dismantling of new structures, consisting of concrete foundation with the area of 45 square meters to the B zone and underground projects around C3 hole in the citadel.

Thirdly, the three sides will sign an undertaking on May 20 and agree on a new map of construction land which was revised to avoid the overlapping.

According to the three sides, all construction projects of the Administrative Department of National Assembly Office are only allowed to carry out with the Viet Nam Archaeology Institute consent, to avoid the regrettable damages to the relic.
