VietNamNet Bridge – Elevators are broken very often, even do not work for a week; corridors are dirty and smelly; water spills everywhere; garbage is rampant… That is the situation in the B6A Nam Trung Yen building in Hanoi’s largest resettlement area – Nam Trung Yen.
The Nam Trung Yen resettlement area is located in the districts of
Cau Giay, Thanh Xuan and Tu Liem, with an area 56.4 ha, inaugurated in
Located on the road of Pham Hung, Nam Trung Yen resettlement area is
expected as the model apartment blocks of Hanoi, with completed
infrastructure and services.
However, since it was put into operation from 2009, the quality of
apartment blocks in this area has been completed for quick degradation.
From March 29, a few dozens of households on 17 floors of the B6A
building have not had evacuator service, making their life difficult.
Mrs. Tran Thi Thu on the 12th floor said: “I’m young but whenever I’m
back home from the market or the office, I’m very tired of climbing up
stairs, let alone the elderly and children.” The building management
board says that the elevators in this building do work because of power
cut. The reason is that the constructor of this building is the partner
in the power purchasing contract but it has not paid power charges. The
building management board has repeatedly proposed to takeover of the
power contract but the constructor has ignored the proposal.
Much of the area of the 1st floor of the building is abandoned. It is dirty and has smell of urine.
The corridor is also dirty and becomes a site for gathering of building materials and garbage.
The electric wire, cable system of floors are unprotected.
Water on the hallway, causing slipping when people go through here.
Damp walls, making paint peel off.
