HCMC – The Ministry of Transport has written to the Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam (CAAV) urging it to speed up work on component four of the phase-one Long Thanh International Airport project in Dong Nai Province.
Component four, which costs VND6,364 billion and is executed by CAAV, comes with 11 work items, which have been approved by the Ministry of Transport
The ministry has approved contractor selection plans for two of the 11 work items, namely a maintenance center for ground support equipment and aircraft cleaning areas 1 and 2.
However, component four has lagged behind schedule.
By the middle of this month, the contractor selection plans of the remaining nine work items have yet to go before the Ministry of Transport.
No contractors have been named for all the 11 work items as the minimum land-use fee has not been determined.
To ensure the fourth component of the airport project is on schedule, the ministry requested CAAV to announce of the 11 work items and a preliminary assessment of contractor capacity and experience, and prepare documents to invite tenders.
Dong Nai Province now has difficulty determining the minimum land-use fee, thus affecting the progress of component four.
