ah! you are right! especially in rush hours, traffic is a real big pain!
subway project in hanoi has same situation too....much slower,until now there is still no progress,only newly setup construction sites!
that elevated line doesn't have a place on CBD area (Old Quarter),but at least it will serve well enough for some dense population areas it go through!
of course man,BRT is about specific buses run on it's own lane!
let hope bus drivers are well-trained too!
