The new toilets are part of a plan to build 1,000 public toilets in the city, which was approved back in August, as a response to mounting public complaints about woeful lack of such essential facilities, especially in tourist areas.

In addition, 10 specialised tank trucks, 50 automatic water filters and 200 stone benches will be made available for public use.

All concerned agencies and departments in the city will cooperate and provide guidance to investor Vinasing Media & Trading JSC to appropriately implement the project.

The city’s Department of Construction will collaborate with the investor to adjust and finalise the designs and 3D models of public toilets in each location for five piloting toilets which are scheduled to be completed this month, targeting 200 new toilets prior to the 2017 Lunar New Year.

New public toilets will be built mostly in urban districts, popular tourist spots, cultural centres and traffic hubs, as well as public entertainment venues and crowded areas.
