Representatives from Thu Duc District said that they have completed the first phase of the project but are constrained due to site clearance and compensation problems in the section from Thu Duc intersection to the area adjacent to Binh Duong Province.
Some households have not agreed to the compensation package offered while others want early compensation. The district however lacks the funds.
Mr. Quan instructed Thu Duc District to focus on compensation and resettlement operations and asked the Department of Finance to provide the necessary funds by March 2013.
