HCMC – Construction units have been asked to take advantage of favorable weather conditions to speed up the Nghi Son-Dien Chau expressway project, one of the subprojects of the North-South Expressway project, to put it into service in 2023.
The 50-kilometer-long Nghi Son-Dien Chau section will pass through the north-central provinces of Thanh Hoa and Nghe An. It was transferred from the public-private-partnership model to the public investment model.
The subproject requires over VND7.2 trillion in investment, with costs for construction and purchasing equipment accounting for some VND4.3 trillion and site clearance and resettlement for around VND1.7 trillion.
Pham Van Minh, deputy head of Project Management Unit 6, which was assigned by the Transport Ministry to represent the subproject’s investor, said that it is some 2.7% complete after three months of construction.
Project Management Unit 6 had allocated over VND800 billion for construction work this year. Of the amount, over VND655 billion has been disbursed in the year to date, reaching 83% of the total.
Minh added that site clearance in Thanh Hoa has reached 97% of the target, while that in Nghe An is some 95% complete.
