HCMC – Authorities of Dong Nai Province are seeking funding for the initial phase of a water drainage project at Long Thanh International Airport, said local media reports.

The Dong Nai Department of Agriculture and Rural Development has not been able to approve an investment policy for the project due to a shortage of funding. An estimated VND1.2 trillion would be needed for the drainage project.

The project would serve the drainage needs of five reservoirs inside the future airport.

The first phase of the drainage project also involves the construction of five bridges and nearly 17 kilometers of rural roads along streams.

As part of the project, contractors will dredge and reinforce 20 kilometers of Bung Mon and Da Vang streams. A drainage system would be built to drain water from Long Thanh airport into these two streams.

The first phase of the Long Thanh airport water drainage project is a crucial component of the local development plan and has been incorporated into Long Thanh District’s land usage scheme.

As a substantial amount of capital is required, the province has not been able to secure funding from the mid-term public investment budget for the 2021-2025 period, according to provincial authorities.
