Specifically, the compensation and payment plan has been approved for 1,487 households affected by the project. The total area paid for site clearance compensation is 273/331ha.
On June 17, Soc Trang started one of four construction and installation bidding packages. Currently, contractors are focusing on building camps, gathering materials, machinery and equipment and submitting construction organization plans according to approved construction drawings design documents.
Regarding resettlement for affected people, Soc Trang is implementing construction of 4/6 resettlement areas, currently reaching about 60% of the volume. At the same time, urgently coordinate with governing agencies to relocate technical infrastructure works within the site clearance of the project.
Regarding construction materials for the project, Soc Trang Provincial People’s Committee said that the locality is preparing procedures to put 7 sand mines into the project. In which, there are 2 extension mines and 5 mines are surveying to assess reserves and quality.
The People’s Committee of Soc Trang province also said that the project was implemented in an area with soft ground, so a large amount of sand material must be used to fill the roadbed. However, Soc Trang province has no quarries, clay, etc., so it has to use materials from outside the province, which will affect the progress and cost of construction.
Soc Trang Provincial People’s Committee is also expected to assign the mine to contractors to exploit sand for highway construction according to a specific mechanism. However, this is an unprecedented work in the locality and a lot of complicated procedures. Besides, it is difficult to determine the price of sand mining because there are no guidelines and no norms.
“Recommending the Ministry of Transport to guide the procedure to determine the sand price estimate when assigning the mine to the contractor to exploit sand for the project” – the report of Soc Trang Province People’s Committee stated.
Another problem, Soc Trang has not yet determined the price of sand, the specific land price at the time of signing the contract, because the mine has not been identified, the mine has not been assigned, and the mining cost has not been determined. From there, the contract price is only an estimate and after handing over the mine to the contractor and the sand mining organization, the investor will organize the rebuilding of the sand price and adjust the contract. Soc Trang Provincial People’s Committee also asked the Ministry of Transport to share experiences in implementing this issue.
In addition, the People’s Committee of Soc Trang province also proposed that the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment soon coordinate with the Ministry of Construction and the People’s Committees of provinces and cities in the Mekong Delta to determine the reserves of common materials, such as stones, construction sand, and soil. roadside lightning… From there, it is possible to regulate for localities with scarce or no material sources for the provinces to use as a basis for calculating construction estimates and project implementation.
