Sand shortage threatens HCMC Beltway 3 progress

HCMC – The construction of HCMC Beltway No. 3 is facing a major setback due to a shortage of sand, potentially jeopardizing the project’s completion date.

The project requires 9.3 million cubic meters of sand for landfilling, but only 0.4 million cubic meters have been delivered so far.

As a result, several contractors have been unable to start or complete crucial tasks, leading to slow progress in Thu Duc City and the outlying districts of Binh Chanh, Cu Chi, and Hoc Mon.

In response, Deputy Prime Minister Tran Hong Ha has instructed the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment to establish a task force to address the sand shortage.

Authorities are exploring options such as transferring sand from other projects in the Mekong Delta to prioritize the HCMC Beltway No. 3.

Investors and contractors involved in the project are urged to seek alternative sources of sand and expedite the transportation process to mitigate delays.
