Issues relating to site clearance and compensation were cited as major obstacles to progress on key transport infrastructure projects in Hanoi.

According to the municipal People’s Committee, Hanoi intended to complete 22 key infrastructure projects from 2011-2015, but only seven were put into operation, three are roughly completed, seven have only finished their clearance and five have yet to begin.

As of June 15, 2015, disbursement for basic infrastructure projects for the year was at 43.6 percent, falling behind schedule.

In order to hasten project implementation, the committee asked relevant departments and investors to re-examine and allocate capital to ensure progress and quality.

Relevant agencies were asked to resolve problems relating to site clearance and resettlement.-VNA
