Work began Monday on a 280 hectare resettlement area for the Long Thanh International Airport project, with residents set to receive their land lots in August.
The Loc An – Binh Son resettlement area, located in the southern province of Dong Nai, where the new airport is to be built, consists of over 5,000 land lots for 29,000 residents.
Dong Nai authorities will build roads, utilities, schools, markets, community centers and religious facilities before handling the land lots to residents to construct their own houses.
The first 700 households are set to receive their land lots in August.
This is the first of two resettlement areas that will be built for residents affected by the Long Thanh Airport project.
