HÀ NỘI - The Minister of Transport has requested agencies and units under the Ministry of Transport, heads of investors and project management boards to boost the disbursement of public investment capital for transport projects.
Minister Nguyễn Văn Thể asked units to clarify the reasons for delays to each project to come up with specific, drastic and effective solutions to accelerate disbursement in the last months of 2022.
The units needed to review the entire implementation progress of projects deployed in 2022 to adjust capital in line with the implementation schedule, he said.
The units were also required to speed up the construction progress, site clearance, resettlement, design work, estimates and contractor selection for projects, especially key projects that must be completed this year.
Key projects include the eastern section of the North-South Expressway, Mỹ Thuận - Cần Thơ Expressway, railway projects, the HCM City Ring Road 3, the route connecting National Highway 91 with Long Xuyên bypass, the route connecting Hà Nội-Hải Phòng expressway with Cầu Giẽ-Ninh Bình expressway, the route to Tây Nguyên Central Highlands and the route connecting northern mountain provinces.
It is expected that by the end of September, the Ministry of Transport will disburse VNĐ26,960 billion (US$1.13 billion).
From now until the end of the year, it is necessary to continue disbursing VNĐ23,368 billion ($984 million). VNS
