HA NOI (VNS) — Nguyen Quoc Hung, vice-chairman of the Ha Noi People's Committee, yesterday said the land clearance for the second phase of the drainage project should be completed by December 31.
According to the project management board, there are several problems facing the process of land clearance, particular in the eight districts and wards where the drainage system is located.
To speed up the completion of the project as planned, the vice-chairman said local authorities should raise awareness and persuade residents to move to resettlement areas to allow the construction of the system, and said contractors should also speed up their work.
In addition, the local authorities also needed to take strong measures to take over the land of households that have been compensated already, but have not handed over the land to the contractors, Hung said.
All land clearance activities must be completed by December, with only Dong Da District getting an extension period till January 20 next year, he said.
He also said the Ha Noi Drainage Ltd. Co, working with the National Resources and Environment Department, should determine the landmarks and withdraw land for building and upgrading pumping stations. — VNS
