HCMC – The Ministry of Transport has instructed the My Thuan Project Management Board to enforce penalties on contractors who fail to adhere to project schedules while working on the My Thuan-Can Tho Expressway.

The My Thuan Project Management Board, along with contractors and relevant units, has been urged to mobilize manpower and equipment to expedite the progress of Phase 1 of the My Thuan-Can Tho Expressway so that it can be completed by the end of this year as originally planned.

The Construction Investment Management Agency under the Ministry of Transport has pointed out that the delays in the expressway project are partly due to unfavorable weather conditions. However, the primary reason for the setbacks is the failure of contractors to adequately allocate personnel and equipment for the project.

To meet the year-end deadline, the My Thuan Project Management Board has been tasked with maintaining a regular presence at the construction sites to oversee the project’s implementation and address any technical issues that may arise.

The management unit is also responsible for directing contractors and consultants to review outstanding work, establish detailed plans for remaining tasks, and commit to project schedules.

Penalties will be applied to contractors who do not adhere to their project schedules and do not take corrective action after receiving warnings from the management board. Contractors are also prohibited from relocating equipment, machinery, or personnel from construction sites without prior consent from the investor.

The My Thuan Project Management Board has reported that the project is currently 72% complete.

The My Thuan-Can Tho Expressway, spanning nearly 23 kilometers in Vinh Long Province, is being developed by the My Thuan Project Management Board and requires over VND4,800 billion. Once completed, the expressway will provide a crucial link between HCMC and Can Tho City.
