QUẢNG NAM — Minister of Transport Trương Quang Nghĩa, has asked work units to ensure the quality of the Đà Nẵng-Quảng Ngãi Highway.
The instruction was issued yesterday at a meeting with leaders of central Quảng Nam Province during a direct inspection of the highway’s construction.
Cracks and subsidence were absolutely not permitted on the new highway, he said.
Contractors, who were not available to ensure quality of the construction, would be removed from the project, he added.
The Đà Nẵng-Quảng Ngãi Highway is expected to be 140km long.
A section of the highway, running through Quảng Nam Province, is nearly 92km long and passes through seven districts, towns and cities, affecting 8,300 households.
The province has, so far, paid compensation and resettlement money to nearly 8,200 local households and also handed over nearly 90km to construction units.
The province will complete land clearance and compensation formalities by the end of this month so that the highway can begin operations in 2017.
Speaking at the meeting, the minister emphasised that the highway was an important project for the country, so investors, construction units and localities should continuously work together to solve pending problems, especially in land clearance compensation.
Other local transport construction, which links to the highway, should be put on priority, aiming to create sustainable development for Quảng Nam and other provinces in the region, the minister said.
Đinh Văn Thu, chairman of the provincial People’s Committee, also said the province would closely co-ordinate with investors and relevant agencies for efficient land clearance compensation to complete construction according to the proposed plan. — VNS
