HCMC – Dong Nai Province has handed over more than 1,800 hectares of land, with 304 hectares handed over on March 16 to the Airports Corporation of Vietnam (ACV) for the first phase of the Long Thanh International Airport project.
In early March, Long Thanh District completed the handover of nearly 55 hectares of cleared land for the project’s first phase, which requires 1,810 hectares, according to the district government.
The district is speeding up site clearance work to hand over the remainder to the investor as soon as possible.
Some 300 hectares of a total of 722 hectares of land in reserve will be handed over on March 23, the local media reported.
The Long Thanh International Airport project is set to cover some 5,000 hectares of land and have an annual capacity of 100 million passengers and five million tons of cargo. The project needs some VND336.6 trillion, including over VND114 trillion for the first phase.
In related news, the Dong Nai government said that the province would hold conferences to garner feedback over a Long Thanh District development plan by March 26.
Under the general development plan until 2040, with a vision toward 2050, Long Thanh District will be divided into five development areas based on administrative boundaries, main traffic routes and the terrain. They are the expanded Long Thanh urban and industry-service complex area, the Binh Son urban area to the northeast of the district, the commercial service-urban area to the west of the district, the Long Thanh airport special function area and the hi-tech agriculture-service urban area.
