HCMC – The Transport Ministry has been urged to conduct further procedures to break ground on three component projects of the North-South Expressway, including the Mai Son-Highway 45, Vinh Hao-Phan Thiet and Phan Thiet-Dau Giay in September, and put them into operation by 2022.
The request was included in the Government’s Resolution No.112, which has been issued to roll out the National Assembly’s Resolution No.117 regarding the transfer of the investment method for some subprojects of the expressway during the 2017-2020 period.
The Transport Ministry was given the right to consider and approve adjustments to the three subprojects, which were changed from the public-private partnership format to the public investment format.
Also, the ministry has to monitor and take charge of the accuracy and logic of the total adjusted investment of these three subprojects.
Meanwhile, the Ministry of Planning and Investment was required to cooperate with the Ministry of Finance to work on capital allocation issues, so these component projects can be executed as planned. In addition, chairpersons of provinces and cities through which the three subprojects pass have to ensure site clearance activities are conducted in a timely and appropriate manner.
