Dong Nai Province wants 1,800 relocation slots for those affected by the Long Thanh Airport project to be used for the Bien Hoa-Vung Tau expressway.
The proposal was sent by the Dong Nai People’s Committee to the government regarding the relocation for people affected by the expressway.
The Loc An-Binh Son relocation area for people affected by Long Thanh, slated to be Vietnam’s largest airport, spans over 280 ha and has over 7,000 slots.
A total of 4,900 slots are for those affected by the airport’s construction, and 350 are for those affected by the construction of two roads that connect with the airport.
Now Dong Nai wants the other 1,800 slots to be used for the relocation of people affected by the Bien Hoa-Vung Tau expressway project, whose main investor will be responsible for refunding investment costs to the national budget, provincial authorities said.
The first phase of the Bien Hoa-Vung Tau expressway, spanning 53.7 km and having four to six lanes, costs over VND17.8 trillion ($757.4 million). For its construction, Dong Nai authorities have reclaimed around 400 ha of land in Bien Hoa City and Long Thanh District, affecting over 2,000 families.
Earlier this year, Dong Nai built the Long Duc relocation area, spanning 30 ha and costing VND290 billion, for around 3,400 people affected by the project.
