HCMC – Work on three components of the first-phase Bien Hoa-Vung Tau expressway project is scheduled to begin by June 30, but site clearance for components 1 and 2 in the Dong Nai Province area has yet to be completed.

Dong Nai authorities have requested relevant units to speed up site clearance for the Bien Hoa-Vung Tau expressway and the building of resettlement areas for households affected by the project, reported the Vietnam News Agency.

The expressway has a total length of 53 kilometers, passing through Dong Nai and Ba Ria-Vung Tau provinces. The section running through Dong Nai Province is 34-kilometer long, which includes two components.

To build the expressway, the local authorities have to revoke hundreds of hectares of land from different organizations and nearly 4,000 households.

Dong Nai plans to build four resettlement areas for residents affected by the Bien Hoa- Vung Tau expressway project. However, three projects of which now face issues relating to land origin that need to wait for a land use purpose conversion.

Meanwhile, work on the 30-hectare Long Duc resettlement area in Long Thanh District begun earlier this year, but the project is inactive now due to hindrances to site clearance.
