|Hanoi will control outdoor advertising strictly.|
Accordingly, billboards in underpasses and on pedestrian bridges and flyovers must not cover an area of more than 40 square meters and not obstruct traffic.
Advertising writing and horizontal signboards on office buildings cannot exceed two meters in height and cover 30 square meters, nor be longer than the width of the building.
