HCMC – The deadline was set for the handover of all cleared land by late June this year, the handover has yet to be completed for the Van Ninh-Cam Lo Expressway project in Quang Tri Province.

By December 23, Quang Tri Province has completed site clearance compensations for 27 km out of the total 32.5 km, reaching nearly 83%. Among those, the project investor received 23.1 km of the cleared land, accounting for 71%.

The relocation of 351 households affected by the project, including 88 households in Vinh Linh, 132 in Gio Linh and 131 in Cam Lo districts, remains at a low pace, according to the Ho Chi Minh Road Management Board, the project’s investor.

Only 28 out of the total households in these localities have been relocated, so far. Additionally, nine resettlement areas under construction have had 30% to 95% of their work volume completed.

The delays in construction of resettlement areas are attributed to a lack of soil for filling, challenges in site clearance, land use purpose conversion and other procedures.

Work began early this year on the 66-km Van Ninh-Cam Lo component, part of the eastern North-South Expressway project. The section running through Vinh Linh, Gio Linh and Cam Lo districts in Quang Tri Province is over 32.5 km long.
