TÂY NINH — The southern province of Tây Ninh has approved building a multifunctional complex that would include a logistics centre, an inland container depot (ICD) and a general port, with total investment of more than VNĐ2.9 trillion (US$125 million).
The project will cover 259.22ha in Trảng Bàng Town, including a 159.70ha logistics centre, a 48.94ha ICD, and a 50.58ha complex port.
With modern technology and infrastructure, the multi-functional complex will have warehouses, storage yards, technical infrastructure, housing, offices, an executive centre, roads, green spaces and other services.
It will be close to Sài Gòn River in the north and southeast directions, and adjacent to a residential area on Provincial Road No 789 in the southwest direction, and Hồ Chí Minh Highway (running from Lạng Sơn Province to Cà Mau Province) in the northwest direction.
Nguyễn Mạnh Hùng, deputy chairman of the provincial People’s Committee, said the project is expected to provide 1,500 jobs after completion.
The complex will help exploit inland waterway routes on the Sài Gòn River and reduce traffic pressure on roads. It will also take full advantage of domestic transshipment, export and transit of goods in the southeastern region and southern key economic region.
Road, inland waterway and seaway transport connections in the region are also expected to improve. — VNS
