HCMC – Work on the Nguyen Van Linh-Nguyen Huu Tho underpass project in District 7, HCMC has been temporarily suspended.
This decision came after the HCMC Department of Transport received complaints from many units and agencies that major damage and potholes have appeared on Nguyen Van Linh road during the construction of the underpass but have not been repaired by the investor.
Despite the department’s constant requests for road restoration, the project’s main investor, the Management Board for Transportation Works Construction and Investment Projects, has not responded.
The construction will be restarted only after the damaged road in the project area is repaired.
The inspectors of the transport department have been asked to consider imposing sanctions on the main investor of the project, supervision consultant and construction contractors.
The first phase of the Nguyen Van Linh-Nguyen Huu Tho underpass project started in April 2020, with a total investment of VND830 billion. After more than two years of construction, the project is around 35% complete.
