NINH BÌNH — The illegal construction on Cái Hạ Mountain inside Tràng An Heritage Site in northern Ninh Bình province has not been dismantled completely.
Progress has been slow despite the commitment of investor Tràng An Tourism Joint Stock Company.
According to an official of the People’s Committee in Hoa Lư District, only some 10 per cent of the illegal construction has been removed so far.
The company cut into Cái Hạ Mountain and constructed a staircase with 900 stairs, paths and other works, measuring 510m in length.
Earlier, the Department of Construction of Ninh Bình Province and Hoa Lư District People’s Committee issued documents instructing Tràng An Tourism Joint Stock Company to accelerate the dismantling of the illegal structure.
According to a survey, the illegal construction consists of nine segments, many of which are dangerous and difficult to dismantle.
As previously reported by the Việt Nam News Agency, the culture ministry had announced that the company’s construction on Cái Hạ Mountain inside Tràng An Heritage Site violated the Culture Heritage Law, harming the Tràng An World Culture Heritage Site.
The provincial People’s Committee has set up an inspection team and asked Tràng An Tourism Joint Stock Company to voluntarily dismantle the illegal construction.
The Tràng An Landscape Complex was listed among UNESCO World Heritage sites on June 23, 2014. — VNS
