The street continues westward under the name Xuân Thủy Street and eventually becomes Route 32. Cầu Giấy Street is part of old Route 32. It used to be in Từ Liêm district and ran through farmland as part of the route to Sơn Tây. Now it is in Ngọc Khánh Ward of Ba Đình district and Quan Hoa Ward of Cầu Giấy District.
