HCMC – Deputy Prime Minister Le Van Thanh has ordered the site leveling of the Long Thanh International Airport project in Dong Nai Province be completed in July 2023.
Speaking at a meeting of the Government’s steering committee on the project on June 14, the deputy prime minister said that the site leveling process had been moving slowly.
To complete the site leveling of over 100 million cubic meters in July next year, the Airports Corporation of Vietnam (ACV), the big-ticket project’s investor, was asked to ramp up the workload and execute the process in three shifts.
Cao Tien Dung, chairman of Dong Nai Province, said the province handed over 2,398.4 hectares of the total 2,532 hectares of land for the first phase of the project. The remainder will be handed over this month.
As of June 12, the total volume of leveled land had amounted to 11.5 million cubic meters, said ACV General Director Vu The Phiet.
The area that needs to be leveled remains large, so ACV must level 10 million cubic meters each month to ensure the process runs on schedule and is completed in July 2023, said Minister of Transport Nguyen Van The.
The deputy prime minister also asked the Ministry of Transport to work with the Ministry of Construction to complete the approval and appraisal for the design in July and break ground on the passenger terminal in October.
