HCMC – More cleared land has been handed over to HCMC’s second metro line, which connects Ben Thanh Market in District 1 and Tham Luong Depot in District 12, bringing the total area of land already cleared for the project to 90%.

District 3 held a ceremony this morning, March 12, to hand over 42 pieces of land taken back from 42 households and 15 pieces of land from 15 organizations to the Management Authority for Urban Railways of HCMC to build Metro Line No. 2.

The total area of land needed to be cleared for the project in District 3 is nearly 7,200 square meters, with 112 households and organizations affected, according to the district authority.

The 11-kilometer-long Ben Thanh-Tham Luong urban railway will pass through six districts and require over 251,000 square meters of land from 585 households and organizations.

Originally scheduled for completion in 2026, the completion date of the project was later rescheduled to 2030.

Metro Line No. 1, HCMC’s first urban railway, links Ben Thanh Market and Suoi Tien Theme Park in Thu Duc City. It is expected to be put into commercial service in July this year.
