Local residents living along Truc Bach lake had long to suffer from the garbage smell of an illegal nearby dump site. The area, which was often dark and quiet at night, was a popular place for drug addicts to hang out and shoot heroin.
People were recently surprised to see the lakeside section's new look, with colorful wall paintings and lanterns. Murals are painted on the walls, delivering messages of environmental protection. About 200 lanterns are decorated along the lake to lighten the area at night.
The renovation plan was made by local authorities of Truc Bach ward in an effort to improve the local living environment.
The narrow road where 28 families are living on has been clean up. For the first time, local people can enjoy open space without garbage and dead fish in the lake.

Nguyen Huy Dan, chairman of Truc Bach ward people’s committee, said the renovation started in March. After the project was completed, many people and tourists headed to the area to take photos.
When the pandemic is over, it is hoped the road will become a new tourist destination of the capital.
