HCMC – The HCMC Department of Transport said that it would get tough on sloppy roadworks in the city this year.
Asphalt patches on multiple streets in HCMC make the road surfaces uneven after roadworks, damaging the urban beauty and putting road users in danger.
To prevent the situation from continuing, construction firms that are negligent in carrying out road repair work would have their construction permits revoked, said Tran Quang Lam, director of the department.
In December, the department revoked the construction permit of the anti-flood project on Vo Van Ngan Street in Thu Duc City for two months due to its failure to meet construction standards.
“The department will issue a violation record to poorly constructed sites. The developers will have their licenses revoked if they fail to fix the low-quality roadworks within the time limit,” Lam said.
