(PLO)- Ho Chi Minh City has set a target that within nearly a year, the city must complete and hand over at least 70% of the ground to start construction of the Ring Road 3 in June 2023.
Many businesses (enterprises) in the provinces and cities of Binh Duong, Long An, Ho Chi Minh City … think that when there is a ring road 3, logistics costs, the costs of businesses will decrease. This will be a “rescue” project for many business units.
Reduce logistics costs
Delta International Co., Ltd. has more than 40 vehicles at the Ho Chi Minh City branch, of which 25 are trailers, the rest are trucks. On average, this branch can carry out 40 shipments per day to places, mainly Ba Ria-Vung Tau, Binh Duong and through Moc Bai border gate.
Most cars can only make one trip/day, if lucky, the car can run 1.5 times/day. Most cars cannot run twice a day because of the constant traffic jam.

“Traffic greatly affects the delivery and operation of the fleet. When the Ring Road 3 project is implemented, we will have a plan, a new, wider and faster road for vehicles to travel and exploit better” – Mr. Bang Van Chinh, Deputy Director of the Company Delta International Limited Ho Chi Minh City Branch, said.
Similarly, enterprises specializing in import and export in Binh Duong are also looking forward to this project. “Except for traffic jams, the roads leading to Binh Duong have regulations banning hours. Just being careless in loading and unloading goods, vehicle problems, it is almost impossible to ensure timely delivery of goods,” said Mr. Pham Van Xo, General Director of Linker Trading Company.
According to Mr. Xo, currently the traffic density is overloaded, the cost of enterprises greatly affects logistics costs in general and especially transport costs in particular. “In order to solve the above problems, it is very urgent to invest in the 3rd belt project now,” said Mr. Xo.
Not only Linker Trading Company, before the problem of traffic jams in this area, many enterprises in provinces and cities such as Binh Duong, Dong Nai and Ho Chi Minh City, especially logistics enterprises, have petitioned and organized many many meetings to discuss traffic issues and infrastructure upgrades. Even businesses have thought of the option of transporting goods by rail to the border gates, but this solution is still not feasible because it requires a lot of costs.
Wards have activated and conducted a tally of relevant households. Especially the propaganda for people who have land in the project, to avoid the case that we continue to have transactions and transfers, many complicated problems will arise in the process of compensation for site clearance.

When the feasible project is approved, almost all the surveying, counting, measuring and drawing work has been done. We shortened the time by more than half of the previous practice. I think this is a new step, one of the four special mechanisms that the National Assembly has authorized to apply to the 3rd ring road project.

The provinces and cities are determined to implement the 3rd belt
Immediately after the National Assembly passed, Ho Chi Minh City and localities agreed on the regulation on coordination and consulting resolutions to submit to the Government a resolution to implement the project. Currently, the People’s Council of Binh Duong province has agreed with the policy of committing to allocate 50% of the provincial budget capital of the total investment of component projects through the province.
Mr. Mai Hung Dung, Standing Vice Chairman of Binh Duong Provincial People’s Committee, said that the province will also actively coordinate with Ho Chi Minh City, especially consulting units of ministries and branches to coordinate in the most synchronous and correct manner. procedures for quick project implementation. “If we do not coordinate well, we will encounter many problems in the implementation progress of each section, each province,” Dung said.
On the side of Long An province, in July, the Department of Transport of Long An province handed over the landmark in the field to Ben Luc district to set up a site clearance project. From now until the end of the year, Long An province will complete the clearance procedures for submission for approval.
“About the progress of site clearance, it is possible to announce to the people in early 2023 and conduct land recovery. We are also consulting construction drawings at the same time, basically the province also ensures the GPMP progress “- Mr. Dang Hoang Tuan, Director of the Department of Transport of Long An province, committed.
According to Chairman of Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee Phan Van Mai, the implementation time to complete the Ring Road 3 project is about 3.5 years. Ho Chi Minh City is in a highly urbanized area, land clearance is very difficult, not to mention the project goes through four localities, if not proactive and not well prepared, the project progress will be affected.
“In terms of organization, I suggest that the city, district, district, ward and commune levels try to fix personnel to participate in organizations from the beginning to the end of the project. Only in case of force majeure will change. But today this comrade goes to a meeting, tomorrow it is very difficult to direct the other comrade,” said Mr. Mai.
Ho Chi Minh City has set a goal within nearly a year to complete and hand over at least 70% of the ground to start construction in June 2023. Ho Chi Minh City is the locality with the largest volume of clearance of the four localities, with more than 640 hectares of land and 3,900 households.
Attract investors to adjacent projects
3 ring road
According to the City Traffic Construction Investment Project Management Board, the Ring Road 3 is particularly important in forming the lifeline traffic network of the southern key economic region. Once closed, this route will promote trade between the provinces, promote the comprehensive economy of the regions and be a bright spot to attract investors to projects adjacent to the 3rd Ring Road.
Specifically, will create new development space, exploit the potential of land use to build a sustainable and modern urban system. Besides, it shortens the travel time from Ho Chi Minh City to the provinces of Binh Duong, Dong Nai, Long An, the southwestern provinces to the northern region and vice versa.
At the same time, it helps to connect satellite urban areas and industrial zones to the core region of the Southeast region; help promote economic development, open new urban development direction of HCMC area and satellite cities. Not only that, the Ring Road 3 also enhances opportunities and investment cooperation between the Southeast provinces…
