HCMC – The HCMC government has proposed the authorities of Tay Ninh, Binh Duong and Binh Phuoc provinces extract sand from the Dau Tieng Lake for the construction of Beltway 3.
The proposal aims to ease the sand shortage for the construction of the beltway and help ensure the project can be carried out on schedule.
The city has also asked the three provinces to provide information on sand reserves in the Dau Tieng Lake area, including mining licenses and the volume to be exploited.
Moreover, the local authorities are also asked to work with relevant units to check the quality of sand and supply construction materials for the beltway project.
According to estimates, the project would need around 1.6 million cubic meters of soil, 7.2 million cubic meters of sand for the road foundation, 1.5 million cubic meters of sand for construction and 4.4 million cubic meters of stone.
Currently, the sources of stone and soil for the road foundation are basically enough. However, the project lacks sand for the road foundation.
The 76-kilometer-long Beltway 3 project in HCMC is one of the key traffic infrastructure projects in the country, which is scheduled to get off the ground in June 2023.
