HCMC – The HCMC government has proposed the Ministry of National Defense hand over military land to develop a road connecting Tran Quoc Hoan Street with Cong Hoa Street in Tan Binh District to ease traffic congestion at the Tan Son Nhat International Airport.
The projected road is set to serve the operation of the third passenger terminal of the airport, or Terminal T3, in line with the plan adjustment for the Tan Son Nhat International Airport until 2020, with a vision toward 2030, helping reduce traffic gridlock in the airport area.
Meanwhile, the Terminal T3 project has been approved for investment by the prime minister. The Airports Corporation of Vietnam is working on the completion of all the construction procedures so the terminal project can be completed in June 2023.
To speed up the construction of the road in sync with the third terminal project, HCMC proposed the Ministry of National Defense work out a conclusion on the boundary of the road project.
Accordingly, the city proposed the ministry hand over some 1,120 square meters of land outside the boundary to the city so that it can ensure the convenient and safe movement of traffic and relocate residents affected by the project, Phap Luat Online reported, citing the HCMC government’s document sent to the ministry on May 26.
The 4.4-kilometer-long road project with six lanes requires a total investment of over VND4.8 trillion.
