HCMC – Dong Nai authorities have proposed utilizing soil excavated from the Long Thanh International Airport project as fill material for the Bien Hoa-Vung Tau Expressway.

This proposal was conveyed in a document sent to the prime minister, outlining the progress of the airport project in late February.

In their proposal, Dong Nai authorities emphasized the advantages of transporting soil from the designated area for Terminal 3 (T3) construction to the Bien Hoa-Vung Tau Expressway project site. They underscored the benefits of this initiative, including mitigating environmental pollution, alleviating traffic congestion on National Highway 51, and reducing overall project costs, the report said.

If approved, Dong Nai authorities will directly assign contractors to excavate and transport soil to the Bien Hoa-Vung Tau Expressway construction site in accordance with regulations, said the authorities.

Site clearance for the Long Thanh airport project is 98.9% complete, setting the stage for the construction of the project’s first phase.

The 187-hectare area earmarked for T3 construction is located within the construction site for the first phase of the airport project.

The expressway section in Dong Nai Province needs over five million cubic meters of soil for leveling.
