Proposal to invest VND 5,702 billion to develop 2 waterway corridors and Southern logistics
The Management Board of Waterway Projects has just requested the MOT to approve the Pre-Feasibility Study Report of the Southern Regional Logistics and Corridor Development Project (SWLC Project).
The project is expected to deploy in the city. HCM City, Can Tho city and provinces of Vinh Long, Ben Tre, Tien Giang, Long An, Dong Nai, Ba Ria - Vung Tau, with the main objective of upgrading the infrastructure of two waterways in the southern region.
In which, East-West Corridor (across Hau River, Tra On River, Mang Thit canal, Co Chien river, Cho Lach canal, Tien river, Ky Hon canal, Rach La canal, Vam Co river, Nuoc Man canal, Rach river Sand, Soai Rap River, Long Tau River, Dong Tranh River, Tac Cua River / Tac Bai River, Go Gia River, Thi Vai River) will be upgraded to class II inland waterways with a channel width of 55m for the canal. ; 75 m wide for rivers, running depth of minus 3.3 m, curvature radius of at least 500 m for canals and 700 m for rivers to help the design fleet propose a 1,500 ton self-propelled vessel , fleet of barges 2x500 tons, 3-layer container ships for safe circulation.
For the North - South Corridor (across Dong Nai, Nha Be, Long Tau, Dong Tranh, Tac Cua / Tac Bai Rivers, Go Gia and Thi Vai Rivers), the project will be upgraded to grade II. inland waterway with channel width of 60 m for canal, 90 m for rivers, operating depth of negative 7 m, minimum curvature radius of 500 m for canal and 700 m for river for possible operation proposed design fleet of ships of 3,000-5,000 tons, 4-layer container ships.
Preliminary calculations by Waterway Projects Management Board, the project will dredge about 8 million m3 and upgrade the channel to level II inland waterways; the bank protection embankment is about 28km long for key positions on the waterway, preventing landslides in densely populated areas and contributing to creating a green, beautiful landscape along the route; to renovate and upgrade 2 bridges: Tra On Bridge and Cho Lach 2 Bridge; to build 16 passenger berths across the river, in which 10 existing berths are replaced and 6 new berths at 3 curved cross-sections in Mang Thit river / canal, Rach La canal (2 berths are built on each side).
In addition, the project also builds and returns 8 km of residential roads and bridges along the canal, improves and connects the transport infrastructure system, promotes economic development and people's life. areas where the project goes through.
With the above work items, the total preliminary investment of the project is up to VND 5,702 billion and has become one of the largest investments in developing inland waterways system ever. The project is proposed to invest in the form of 100% state budget allocation using ODA loans from the World Bank; counterpart capital of the Government of Vietnam; non-refundable aid capital of the Australian Government.
According to the plan, the time to prepare the project is from October 2019 to December 2021, the time for implementing the project is from January 2022 to June 2025.
Once completed, the project will contribute to improving the efficiency and safety of two key inland waterways in the Mekong Delta and the Southeast while improving accessibility and mobility from the Delta. the Mekong River as well as the industrial zones of Binh Duong and Dong Nai connected to the city. HCM City and deep-water ports of import and export along Thi Vai river.
In addition, the project also contributes to improving the transport infrastructure network, reducing traffic congestion on key waterways and reducing transportation costs, the project will contribute to poverty reduction, economic development. socio-economic, improve safety of waterways and waterways and security in border areas of provinces in the Mekong River Delta and Southeast.
The transport infrastructure system is currently the bottleneck in logistics services in Vietnam. Transporting bulk cargoes from Mekong Delta to ports in HCMC. HCM has to go through Cho Gao canal, Tien Giang province, in the peak season it can take up to 24 - 36 hours partly due to congestion because some sections on the route have not been synchronously improved; The current transport route passing through Tien River, Vam Nao River and Hau River is quite long, taking a long time to reach Can Tho Port. Roads connecting to ports in Ho Chi Minh City, especially Cat Lai port, are often congested during the peak export season, businesses have to reserve 1.5 times more transit time than usual to ensure that on-time delivery. While ports in Ho Chi Minh City area are being overloaded, the Cai Mep - Thi Vai port cluster has not been used and exploited effectively.
The study results also show that, although multimodal transport in the Southeast (North-South corridor) is currently quite good with dense container traffic, container transport in the Mekong River Delta (corridor East - West) is still very modest (accounting for less than 2% of transported goods) because the clearance of bridges on the route is not synchronized and the channel is not at the same level.
