HCMC – The southeastern province of Dong Nai is set to build two riverside roads with a total length of some 10 kilometers and a total cost of over VND5.2 trillion in the coming months.
The projected 4.6-kilometer road along the Cai River, a branch of the Dong Nai River, had earlier been approved by Dong Nai Province’s People’s Council with a total investment of over VND3.9 trillion. The provincial project management board, the investor of the project, recently submitted the feasibility study report of the project to the provincial government for approval.
The road will start from Ha Huy Giap Street in Bien Hoa City’s Quyet Thang Ward and end at Tran Quoc Toan Street in An Binh Ward. The project will comprise five bridges consisting of Chim Tau, Tan Mai, Ba Bot, Rach Gio and Suoi Linh, with a width of some 23 meters each, according to the provincial project management board.
Over VND3.2 trillion will be spent on site clearance and compensation for 500 households affected by the project, work on which is set to begin in the 2020-2024 period, VnExpress news site reported.
Another riverside road, which will run from Hoa An Bridge in Bien Hoa City to Vinh Cuu District, will need a total cost of over VND1.3 trillion. The 5.2-kilometer road project will consist of building a road surface and pavements, installing traffic signs and signal lights and drainage systems. Other components also include planting trees and building the Rach Lung Bridge.
The projected road, which will be 34 meters wide, will use the State budget, with some VND385 billion set aside for the construction. Some VND713 billion will be used for site clearance and compensation.
In addition, the province will construct a park and embankments with a total cost of over VND614 billion.
The province expects the two riverside roads to stimulate the socioeconomic development of Bien Hoa City and Vinh Cuu District, ease traffic jams facing the city and facilitate transport between the province and other southern provinces.
