HCMC – The Airports Corporation of Vietnam (ACV) has expressed concerns over potential delays facing the first phase of the Long Thanh International Airport project as numerous sites have not yet been cleared for handover to contractors.

ACV has formally requested Dong Nai authorities to expedite the handover of remaining sites necessary for the first phase of the airport project.

According to ACV, despite 99% of cleared land being delivered for the construction of the road system connecting to road T1, challenges persist in site clearance at the interchange between T1 road and the Bien Hoa-Vung Tau expressway project, as well as a section at Bung Mon Bridge.

Moreover, although over 89% of cleared land has been handed over to road T2, 9% of the land is not yet ready for construction commencement.

Obstacles remain at the interchange between road T2 and the HCMC-Long Thanh-Dau Giay Expressway, impeding the construction progress of the overpass on the expressway. Additionally, unresolved electricity works pose safety risks and disrupt project schedules.

ACV also said that the construction of drainage systems essential for water diversion from reservoirs 2 and 3 to areas outside the airport, as well as the fencing system encompassing 5,000 hectares of land, cannot start until cleared land is provided.

The Long Thanh International Airport project, slated for three phases of development with a total investment of VND336.63 trillion, necessitates swift resolution of site clearance issues to ensure timely project execution.
