Despite the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic outbreak in the past two years, the city’s MAUR has tried to closely coordinate with the contractors in the construction of the railway, installation of power supply devices, importing 17 trains to Vietnam, construction of overhead power systems, and so on.
In the upcoming time, Hitachi, the main contractor carrying out Contract Package 3 for the project will continue to complete the remaining items such as signals, telecommunications and optical camera communications (OCC) equipment to perform a test run for the whole route.

Currently, the progress of the entire project reaches 91.8 percent.
