HCMC – The Dong Nai government has decided to hand over some 200 more hectares of cleared land to the Southern Airports Authority to develop the first phase of the Long Thanh International Airport project.
The provincial Department of Natural Resources and Environment is responsible for completing the handover of 195 hectares of land in Binh Son Commune in Long Thanh District.
This is the second time the province has handed over cleared land for the project, the local media reported.
Earlier in October 2020, Dong Nai Province handed over 1,280 hectares of land to the Southern Airports Authority for the construction of the project.
In early 2021, the investor broke ground on the first phase of the big-ticket airport project with operations such as bomb and mine detection, site leveling and fence construction. Work on the passenger terminal of the airport project is expected to start in February next year.
The Long Thanh International Airport project will cover 5,000 hectares of land.
