Dong Nai asked to speed up ground clearance for Long Thanh airport project

HANOI (Vietnam News/ANN) -- Deputy Prime Minister Le Van Thanh has asked the southern province of Dong Nai to focus on completing ground clearance work to speed up the first phase of the Long Thanh International Airport project.
The People’s Committee of Dong Nai was requested to implement compensation, support and resettlement packages for local residents affected by the project.

According to the provincial People’s Committee, Dong Nai has to conduct ground clearance on total area of 5,000 hectares for the project, including 2,532 hectares for its first phase.
So far, Dong Nai has handed over 1,284 hectares of cleared land to the Southern Airports Authority, or 51 percent of the total area for the first phase of the project. However, the Ministry of Transport said ground clearance activities remained slow.
The People’s Committee of Long Thanh district attributed the issues to problems over compensation for a number of difficult cases, including those having the land transferred and presented with handwriting agreements, along with COVID-19 impacts. It has received guidance from the provincial people’s committee to deal with the issues.
According to the Airports Corporation of Vietnam (ACV), the Long Thanh International Airport will be built in three phases over three decades. In the first phase, one runway with a length of 4,000m, taxiways, an apron, and a passenger terminal with other auxiliary works sprawling 373,000sqm will be built to serve 25 million passengers and 1.2 million tonnes of cargo each year.
The airport, which was expected to cost VNĐ336.63 trillion (US$14.5 billion), is designed to have four runways, four passenger terminals, and other auxiliary facilities to ensure a capacity of 100 million passengers and 5 million tonnes of cargo a year by 2040.
Located 40km to the east of HCM City, the Long Thanh International Airport is expected to relieve overloading at Tan Son Nhat International Airport in the southern hub, now the country’s largest airport.
