On February 3, the Traffic Project Management Board of Lam Dong Province reported on the overall results of implementing some key transportation projects in 2023 and the plan to implement transportation projects in 2024. Among them, the most important are the Tan Phu – Bao Loc and Bao Loc – Lien Khuong expressway projects.

When completed, the two expressways will connect with the Lien Khuong expressway and the expanded Prenn Pass, significantly reducing travel time between Dalat and provinces in the South.

Specifically, the Tan Phu (Dong Nai province) – Bao Loc (Lam Dong province) expressway is approximately 66 km long (55 km in Lam Dong province) with a total investment of 17,200 billion VND (state capital of 6,500 billion VND, capital from investors and other sources of 10,700 billion VND) using the public-private partnership (PPP) method.

So far, the province of Lam Dong has submitted design, feasibility study report, environmental impact assessment (EIA) report, forest use conversion dossier, policy framework on compensation and support for resettlement to the central ministries for review and approval.

This expressway project will reclaim more than 500 hectares of land in Lam Dong and Dong Nai provinces, involving 1,758 households, including 301 households that need to be relocated. The compensation and support for resettlement amount to approximately 2,821 billion VND.

Four resettlement areas for the project will also be built in Loc Phat town (Bao Lam district) on an area of nearly 3.8 hectares, Dao Oai commune (Da Huoai district) on an area of nearly 12.6 hectares, Loc Phat ward (Bao Loc city) on an area of nearly 19.6 hectares, and Phu Trung commune (Tan Phu, Dong Nai) on an area of 9.5 hectares.

The Bao Loc – Lien Khuong expressway has a total investment of 19,521 billion VND (state capital of 7,761 billion VND, capital from investors and mobilized capital of 11,700 billion VND) implemented through the public-private partnership (PPP) method. The total length of the project is about 74 km.

So far, the investor has completed the final report of the EIA to submit for appraisal. The Ministry of Defense has also agreed on the route direction and the transfer of 27.44 hectares of military land to Lam Dong province to implement the project.

The investor has completed the draft EIA report and community consultation on the draft EIA, and is finalizing it according to the opinions received for review and approval by the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment. The Provincial People’s Council has approved the conversion of more than 3 hectares of forest land and 9.5 hectares of paddy land for other purposes to implement the project.

Four resettlement areas for affected residents will be built, including Loc Thang town (Bao Lam district) on an area of nearly 3.9 hectares, Lien Hiep commune (Duc Trong district) on an area of 2.6 hectares, Hoa Ninh commune (Di Linh district) on an area of over 12 hectares, and Loc Phat ward (Bao Loc city) on an area of nearly 19.6 hectares.

According to the Lam Dong Traffic Management Board, in 2024, departments, related units, and investors will promptly complete the legal documents to commence the construction of the Tan Phu – Bao Loc expressway in the third quarter and the Bao Loc – Lien Khuong expressway in the fourth quarter of this year.

When completed, these two expressways will connect with the Lien Khuong expressway via Prenn Pass, which has just been upgraded and expanded, creating a vital route connecting Lam Dong with provinces in the Southeast and the economic center of HCMC.
