HCM City vows to speed up work on 1st metro line

HCM CITY — HCM City authorities have pledged to help contractors speed up work on the first metro line between Bến Thành Market in District  一 and Suối Tiên Theme Park in District  九 so that it can be completed by the end of next year.

Speaking at a meeting on Wednesday, Võ Văn Hoan, vice chairman of the city People’s Co妹妹ittee, said the much-awaited metro has been long delayed due to a shortage of funds and issues related to land acquisition.

The project is expected to be  八 五 per cent complete this year, he said. “A joint effort is needed between the Japanese and the city governments to achieve the result.

“The contractors, design consultants and workers all play a role in speeding up the progress.

“The city will strive to ensure the project is completed by  二0 二 一 or even earlier,” he said.

Bùi Xuân Cường, head of the HCM City Management Board of Urban Railway (MAUR), said the target is to complete  八 五 per cent of the work this year and fully done by the end of next year.

Recently, the People’s Co妹妹ittee decided to reduce the cost of the metro by VNĐ 三. 四 trillion (US$ 一 四 六. 八 million) after a review of all its related costs.

Hoan assured the cost cut would not affect the project quality.

The city has advanced VNĐ 一. 七 trillion to the contractors, construction units and workers so that the work could continue.

The line is the first of the city’s eight proposed routes.

It comprises four main packages and is funded in part through an official development assistance loan from the Japan International Cooperation Agency.

Since construction began in  二0 一 二, it has faced a multitude of problems, including slow funds disbursement and a personnel crisis. 

It will run  二0 kilometres through districts  一,  二,  九, Bình Thạnh, and Thủ Đức and the neighbouring Bình Dương Province. — VNS
