The FS report was completed one month earlier than the deadline stated in a contract between ACV and the consulting consortium comprising Japanese, French and Vietnamese firms, the local media reported.

The ministry will later submit the report to the Government and the National Assembly for consideration and approval at a meeting in October.

In addition to the feasibility study for the first phase of the project, the environmental impact assessment report for the first phase, issued by the consortium between the Institute of Transport Science and Technology and the Center of Environment and Applied Ecology, was completed on schedule.

This report will be considered by the State Assessment Council before being sent to the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment.

As for the site clearance, compensation and resettlement project, part of the main airport project, the Dong Nai government is building two resettlement areas in Loc An and Binh Son communes of Long Thanh District. The province is also sending announcements to local residents to reclaim land.

An ACV representative reported that the Dong Nai government aims to complete the site clearance, compensation and resettlement work for the first phase this year so that work on the airport project can start at the end of next year.

 

Under the direction of the Government and the Ministry of Transport, ACV has closely coordinated with the provincial authorities on site clearance, compensation and resettlement efforts to kick off the project on schedule.

Long Thanh International Airport, a key national project, was approved by the National Assembly on June 25, 2015. The airport will be developed to meet the 4F standards of the International Civil Aviation Organization.

The airport is designed to handle up to 100 million passengers and five million tons of cargo per year once the three construction phases are complete.

In the first phase, slated for completion by 2025, the airport will have a runway and a passenger terminal that can accommodate 25 million passengers and 1.2 million tons of cargo per year. SGT
