HA NOI — Construction on a VND750 billion (US$35.7 million) air traffic control centre kicked off yesterday in the capital city.
The new construction would replace the existing one which is technologically obsolete.
The project received investment from the Viet Nam Air Traffic Management Corporation and was implemented by Corporation 36 under the Ministry of National Defence, and the Airport Engineering Consultancy and Services Joint Stock Company will supervise the construction progress.
The 20,600sq.m centre in Long Bien District will include a three-floor administrative building and a three-floor air traffic control building.
The project, scheduled to be completed before May 2014, would provide new means of observation for Noi Bai Airport's approach control centre. It would also ensure the security and efficiency of the aviation activities and satisfy increasing requirements for the development of the sector. — VNS
