Ninh Binh City will be expanded to cover an area of 21,124 hectares, with particular work being done in the city centre. It will be better connected with 18 satellite cities in the province, including Tam Diep, Nho Quan and Phat Diem.
Chairman of the provincial People's Committee, Bui Van Thang, said that the plan focuses particularly on Ninh Binh and Tam Diep, and national highways – including 1A, 10, 12B and DT477 – will be improved to link them to auxiliary cities.
Ninh Binh railway station will be moved from the city's central ward of Thanh Binh to its neighbour Nam Binh to improve economic development and transportation links.
The Ninh Binh Airport project in Nho Quan District's Son Lai Commune will also be reviewed, with air taxi services under consideration and plans put in place to ensure greater national defence and security.
The province's plan has also set a target of ensuring all residents have access to clean water and are able to safely and effectively dispose of waste.
Accordingly, each city will build collection points for rubbish, especially near factories and treatment centres. Waste will be classified into categories in a bid to promote recycling, with particular attention given to sewage and industrial waste.
Two provincial cemeteries are planned to be relocated to Tam Diep and Nho Quan, with between 150-300ha designated for each. It has been stipulated that each city's cemetery must be located at least 1.5km away from the nearest residential area. — VNS
