HCMC – Danang City has decided to revoke the 18-year railway station project in Lien Chieu District, the local media reported.
Le Quang Nam, vice chairman of the Danang People’s Committee, on November 17, ordered termination of the city’s railway station construction plan in an area encompassing four communes of Lien Chieu District.
The new railway station will be relocated to Hoa Vang District as part of the city’s overall planning for 2030, with a vision to 2045, authorized by the Prime Minister.
As Danang’s current station is located inside the city, the new station project is aimed at reducing traffic congestion and improving the railway operating efficiency.
The former station project, approved in 2004, consisted of two components with a total investment of roughly VND12,600 billion.
As planned, the authorities would move the station to the city’s west, construct a new railway section stretching 29 kilometers and develop additional technical facilities.
Still, the project has yet to get off the ground due to implementation obstacles.
With the revised plan, there will be a commercial and service center in the area initially intended for the construction of the station in Lien Chieu District.
