The Cat Linh-Ha Dong elevated urban railway train will be put on trial run in August. 


The first elevated railway line of Hanoi was initially scheduled for a test run in September.

At a meeting held on Wednesday to assess the implementation of the project, minister Nguyen Van The said that the trial operation was an important stage to check and ensure stable and safe operation of the system before it is officially put into commercial operation.

He said that an European consultancy was conducting a review and evaluation of the safe quality of the sky train system following the design standards.

The 13km-long railway project of the Ministry of Transport has a total investment of US$886 million, of which two-thirds were loans from China.

The project was initially scheduled for a run in 2016, but that was put back by the end of 2018. — VNS
