The Ho Chi Minh City Belt Road 2 has a total length of about 64 km. Currently, there are 14 km in 4 different sections that have not been completed. In 2023, the Ho Chi Minh City People’s Council approved the investment construction of 2 sections of Belt Road 2.
Section 1 from Phu Huu Bridge to Vo Nguyen Giap Road is about 3.5 km long with a total investment of 9,328 billion VND. Section 2 from Vo Nguyen Giap Road to Pham Van Dong Road is about 2.8 km long with a total investment of 4,543 billion VND.
The two projects involve a land area of 61.51 ha in 6 wards of Thu Duc City: Tang Nhon Phu B, Phuoc Long A, Phuoc Long B, Binh Tho, Truong Tho, and Linh Dong; affecting about 935 cases.
It is expected that the Thu Duc City People’s Committee will strive to complete the compensation, support, resettlement work by November 30, 2024, and hand over 70% of the land to the Management Board of Ho Chi Minh City’s investment projects for transportation construction to start the project in December 2024.
The Thu Duc City People’s Committee also proposed to the Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee and the Steering Committee for Compensation, Support, and Resettlement of Ho Chi Minh City to approve the division into 2 groups for land recovery. Specifically, Group 1 will recover cases of agricultural land and harmonious residential land, Group 2 will recover cases of non-harmonious residential land.
At the conference, the Thu Duc City People’s Committee, in coordination with relevant units, organized gift-giving to 128 households affected by land clearance in the Belt Road 3 project and considered additional support for 17 households in truly difficult circumstances who have complied well with the handover of land, with a total budget of over 1.1 billion VND.
