Dong Nai proposes internal roads for Long Thanh airport project

The Saigon Times Daily

HCMC – The government of Dong Nai Province has proposed the Ministry of Transport develop an internal road network in the Long Thanh International Airport project site to facilitate construction work, Nguoi Lao Dong newspaper reports.

At a meeting with the ministry on January 17, the provincial government proposed amending some regulations on resettlement and land compensation such as those owning large areas of land.

The province’s vice chairman Tran Van Vinh stressed the need to develop internal roads to facilitate construction of the airport, otherwise, the big-ticket project might face delays if such roads are not existent.

He added a plan for building and upgrading roads and bridges would be also needed to keep the project from affecting local residents.

Demining activities as part of the project will cost an estimated VND300 billion (US$13.2 million), according to the local government. However, this component is not included in the VND22.9 trillion fund for resettlement and compensation.

Around 5,000 hectares of land will be cleared to make room for the project, with 4,730 households and 26 organizations to be relocated. About 70% of 15,000 affected people are farmers and the rest are rubber workers and those working for other sectors.
