HÀ NỘI — Deputy Prime Minister Trần Hồng Hà on Tuesday emphasised the importance of selecting a reputable and capable contractor for the construction of the passenger terminal of Long Thành International Airport.
Hà spoke during a meeting on the progress of essential works at Long Thành International Airport, including the construction and installation of equipment for the passenger terminal (Package 5.10) and site clearance for the project.
The project’s main investor, ACV General Director Vũ Thế Phiệt, reported that the unit had revised and adjusted the bidding documents based on the contractors' proposals and provisions of Vietnamese law and international practices.
Representatives of ministries and sectors provided input on selecting general contractors and subcontractors with sufficient capacity and experience to ensure project progress, quality and efficiency.
They also discussed the bidding package's criteria, technical standards, construction time and other aspects.
The Commission for the Management of State Capital at Enterprises would strengthen and consolidate the capacity of ACV's Project Management Board in the coming months. ACV would also strictly implement the Prime Minister's direction on mobilising international experts to consult and support the coordination, supervision, and management of the entire project.
Regarding site clearance, Đồng Nai Provincial People's Committee Chairman Cao Tiến Dũng reported that there was only one household that still needed to relocate for the first 1,810-hectare phase.
This phase’s site clearance will be completed on April 20.
The province would complete the site clearance on the area of 722 hectares for land storage on May 15.
The provincial leaders reported on the clearance progress of two traffic routes connecting No.1 and No.2 and planned to hand over the ground before next June to serve the organisation of peak construction works.
They also recommended the investor soon build a fence on the entire 5,000 ha to serve security work and perform ground levelling to prevent red dust pollution when the airport is put into operation after the first phase is completed.
Deputy PM Hà praised Đồng Nai Province for its progress in site clearance work. He urged ACV and construction units to prevent red dust pollution on the construction site, propose a plan for levelling and greening the reserve land area, and complete the Long Thành Airport project area fence.
The meeting also included a report on the progress of project items such as airport infrastructure, connecting traffic routes, auxiliary works, pile foundations of passenger terminals, and levelling and drainage. – VNS
