During the Tet holidays, while everyone was busy shopping and decorating their homes, Mr. Le Quang Tan’s family was painting lime, installing electricity, and rushing to complete their new house in time for the Lunar New Year of 2024. Mr. Tan is one of the earliest families to build a house in the resettlement area of Dong Cau Thi, Pho Phong commune, Duc Pho town, Quang Ngai province. After 4 months of construction, Mr. Tan’s two-story house has been completed.
This Tet holiday, Mr. Tan’s family celebrated the new year in a stylish house in the resettlement area with a complete system of electricity and roads. Although they have not received compensation money, they have determined to give up their land for the national key project, so as soon as the project was approved, Mr. Tan’s family immediately started building the house. The value of the house is about 1 billion VND, which is suitable for the state’s compensation level. “Leading the way”, this Tet holiday, Mr. Tan and his family enjoyed themselves in their new house.
“This year, we determined that we would celebrate Tet in a new, stylish home, which is more enjoyable and exciting than the old one. A new place is better than an old one, firstly because of the road, secondly because a new house is more lively and more closely connected,” Mr. Tan said.
Mr. Tan’s family and 10 other households have moved to their new homes before the Lunar New Year. Meanwhile, Mr. Nguyen Muoi and his construction team are still working hard to lay foundations and build houses to meet the schedule. Mr. Muoi’s family was given land to build a house in the resettlement area of Dong Cau Thi, Pho Phong commune, Duc Pho town, Quang Ngai province. Mr. Muoi said that the old house has now been almost completely demolished, and the whole family is focusing on building this new house.
Mr. Muoi said that this year is his last Tet holiday celebrating in the old house: “This is going to be the last Tet holiday before we vacate and hand over the land completely. Currently, the house has been almost completely demolished, and the construction team is working here. We are going to celebrate Tet and then move on. The team is fully staffed, so they can work for 2 months, finishing in the 12th month of the lunar calendar and starting reconstruction immediately after Tet.”
In order to ensure the progress of the construction of the East Truong Son – Quang Ngai Highway, Quang Ngai province has built 23 resettlement areas, allocating 700 plots of land for resettlement. Up to now, the localities have handed over 445 plots of land to the affected households. In addition to resettlement, the local authorities must also relocate more than 5,000 graves and many high, medium, and low voltage power lines.
Mr. Le Quoc Dat, Director of the Investment Project Management Board of Quang Ngai Province’s transportation, said that the unit has urged the contractors to urgently complete the resettlement areas and support the families in building their houses.
According to Mr. Le Quoc Dat, this Tet holiday, many households have moved to their new homes in time for Tet, which is also a joy for the investors and the localities: “Implementing the Prime Minister’s directive on actively organizing the implementation of compensation and site clearance work for the North-South East Road project in Quang Ngai – Hai Nhon, Quang Ngai province has invested in the construction of resettlement areas, completing them before September 30, 2013. Based on that, the entire technical infrastructure and land fund have been handed over to the localities for relocation.”
Currently, in Quang Ngai province, all localities have approved 100% of the compensation plan and resettlement arrangements and have handed over the actual land to all affected households. Based on the handover of the resettlement areas, almost all households have started building their houses. Many households have now stabilized their lives in residential areas.”
