Savills Vietnam Research has prepared a 2017 report on Urban Transport in Vietnam. Savills’ report states that:

Strong economic growth and continued urbanisation since the mid-1990s has accelerated demand for roads in HCMC and Hanoi. Present allocations are under 9 percent of the urban area that is similar to Jakarta and Bangkok, but far lower than Shanghai, Singapore, Seoul and Tokyo. Without mass public transport then road area allocation is a concern.

Population density in Ha Noi is 32% higher thanin HCMC, where a one-way commute takes approximately 30 minutes, making it the least inefficient among its ASEAN peers. A Hanoi commute is worse, taking 45 minutes equivalent to Shanghai but better than Jakarta and Bangkok.
