CAN THO – The My Thuan Project Management Board, the investor of the My Thuan-Can Tho expressway project, has issued warnings to contractors as they have failed to ensure the project is on schedule.
Truong Son Construction Corporation, responsible for a construction package of the expressway, which is set to run through two Mekong Delta provinces — Dong Thap and Vinh Long, has got a warning over its delays.
Tran Van Thi, director of the management board, said that the firm had earlier pledged to complete several components of the package before October 18. However, until now, the construction is moving at a snail’s pace.
The package delays have affected the project’s disbursement plan and will lengthen the completion of the entire project, according to the management board.
The management board also issued warnings to another contractor, Cienco 4, which had committed to completing the construction of the Ba Cang Bridge girder and deck prior to October 10 and October 31, respectively. However, the contractor has made little progress.
The My Thuan-Can Tho expressway project, which comprises three installation and construction packages, will start in Tan Hoa Ward in Vinh Long City and end in Binh Minh Town in Vinh Long Province.
The expressway, which requires an investment of over VND4.8 trillion and will have six lanes, is expected to be opened to traffic in 2023.
