HA NOI (VNS)– The northern provinces of Hung Yen and Hai Duong, plus Ha Noi City have told to hasten site clearance for the Ha Noi-Hai Phong Highway Project.
Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung requested Ha Noi authorities to complete site clearance in Gia Lam District's Long Bien Ward.
This means forcing 17 remaining local households to hand over their land to the project.
The PM's message also focused on encouraging residents in the provinces of Hung Yen and Hai Duong to move out of the project area.
Minister of Transport and Viet Nam Infrastructure Development and Finance Investment Joint Stock Company have been asked to work closely with local authorities on clearance to ensure the project makes progress.
The Ha Noi-Hai Phong Highway project started in 2009 with an investment capital of more than VND24 trillion (more than US$1 billion). The 105 km highway was designed for speeds of up to 120km/h.—VNS
