DAK NONG (VNS) — More than 400 households in Nhan Co commune in the Dak R'Lap district of Dak Nong province are complaining that their main road has been incorporated into the Nhan Co industrial complex.
Truong Dinh, a commune resident, said that the industrial complex had made the life of his family and others difficult.
"It is now hard for us to move around and transport goods. We are disturbed by the dust when it is windy and by muddy road when it rains. Many people have fallen because the road surface is rough", Dinh says.
Many households have sent a request to the Nhan Co commune's People's Committee to ask for financial compensation and a new way to approach their homes.
This has become a pressing need as the new school year has approached and hundreds of children have to go to and from school daily. The communal People's Committee has asked Dak Nong's Urban zone managing board to resolve difficulties for inhabitants.
Ho Si Diep, deputy director of the managing board said it would total up the cost of the damages and compensate local inhabitants.
Tran Quoc Dat, deputy director of the urban Infrastructure section of the managing board said it was planned to build a new road as part of the construction plan for Nhan Co industrial complex, but not before the end of this year.
Diep said that the Nhan Co industrial complex was a key project in the province. It had a total area of 150ha and an investment fund of VND1,700 billion (US$81 million).
The managing board said it would arrange for temporary repairs to the road until it could be fixed properly. — VNS
