Da Nang (VNA) – The central coastal city of Da Nang is giving a push to the construction of Da Nang International Airport’s new terminal to meet the set progress timeline.

The terminal’s piling works have been finished, while completion has been made to 82 percent of the foundation beams, 65 percent of the ground level concrete floor, and land clearance is completed. Labour safety, environmental sanitation, fire prevention as well as social order have been also ensured on site.

The new terminal is expected to become operational in the end of quarter I, 2017 as part of the city’s preparations to host the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum the following October.

The project has a total investment of 3,500 billion VND (155 million USD) and comprises three main components: an international passenger terminal, an overpass in front of the terminal and a parking area. The capital for the project has come from the airport’s owner and through commercial loans from BIDV and Vietinbank.

The 48,000 square metre terminal has a design capacity of 4 million passengers per year by 2025, and provides parking space for over 400 automobiles.

In addition, work on Da Nang General Hospital’s Cardiovascular Centre - one of the city’s key projects in 2015 is also being pushed forward. The contractors have completed 327 out of 335 spun concrete piles, and they will continue Larssen sheet piling for basement construction.

With nine storeys and a basement, the 3,560 square metre centre has 200 beds and will be equipped with modern medical equipment. The project is built at the total cost of 236 billion VND (10.5 million USD). It will help improve medical quality and professional capacity in line with infrastructure development to turn Da Nang into a major healthcare centre in the central region and Central Highlands.-VNA
