HCM City (VNA)Ho Chi Minh City has handed over more than 81% of the land needed for the section crossing the city of Belt Road No.3 project, enabling its construction to be launched on June 18 in Long Binh ward of Thu Duc city, according to HCM City’s Management Board of Traffic Works Construction and Investment.

The board reported that so far, localities across the city have provided the investor with about 335 hectares out of the total 410 hectares of land for the project in the city.

Director of the board Luong Minh Phuc said that along with ground clearance, the selection of contractors and consultant agencies is also making progress. The project is expected to open to traffic in late 2025 and fully complete in 2026, he said.

Phuc attributed the good result in ground clearance work to the efforts from the local Party Committees and administrations at all levels and the support of local residents in the project site.

He said that in the time to come, the investor will work with relevant agencies and localities to implement measures to complete the work by December 31.

Belt Road No.3 has a total length of about 76km and total investment of over 75.3 trillion VND (3.2 billion USD), crossing HCM City as well as Binh Duong, Dong Nai and Long An provinces.

In HCM City, the 47.51km section of the project spans Thu Duc city and districts of Hoc Mon, Cu Chi and Binh Chanh./.
