HCM CITY — The Ministry of Transport is again urging HCM City and Đồng Nai to hand over land for constructing Ring Road No.3’s Tân Vạn - Nhơn Trạch section.

Work on the section, which runs 8.75km between provincial Highway 25B in Đồng Nai Province and the HCM City-Long Thành-Dầu Giây Expressway in HCM City, is slated to begin this month, but the construction site has not been handed over to the contractors yet.

In March, the ministry had urged the HCM City and Đồng Nai administrations to hand over the concerned land by March 31. This has not happened for several reasons.

The ministry asked the administrations to promptly allocate funds for land clearance and ensure construction proceeds on schedule.

It said HCM City should direct the Thủ Đức City People’s Committee and related departments to speed up completion of procedures for compensation and resettlement of affected households. Similarly, Đồng Nai should order the Nhơn Trạch District’s People’s Committee to do the same.

The ministry said that it was focusing efforts to begin construction of the Tân Vạn - Nhơn Trạch section this month.

The section has an investment estimate of VNĐ 5.32 trillion (US$231.79 million) sourced from South Korea’s official development assistance (ODA) and counterpart funding from the Vietnamese Government.

The project was approved by the transport ministry more than two years ago. — VNS
