HCMC – The Airports Corporation of Vietnam (ACV) will break ground on the first phase of the Long Thanh international airport project in the southern province of Dong Nai this month, with demining being the first to be implemented, an ACV representative told a recent meeting on the project.
The meeting was attended by Dong Nai Chairman Cao Tien Dung and a working team led by Deputy Minister of Transport Le Anh Tuan to reach a consensus on handing over cleared land for the implementation of the project, reported Phap Luat Online.
After the mine clearance work, ACV will build a fence around the land designated to develop the airport, said the ACV representative.
Of the over 1,800 hectares of land serving the construction of the first phase, competent agencies have completed the site clearance and compensation of over 1,200 hectares, according to data from the provincial Department of Natural Resources and Environment.
The remaining area of land includes rubber farming land yet to be cleared and local residents’ houses yet to be relocated as they have not been given land for the purpose of resettlement.
To date, the government of Long Thanh District had paid compensation worth over VND1.8 trillion to residents affected by the construction of the project. Also, the district has handed over resettlement land to 94 local households.
