The Ho Chi Minh City Department of Transport issued a fifth warning to the investor of the drainage project along Vo Van Ngan Street in Thu Duc City on Sunday over their failure to ensure traffic safety and environmental sanitation.

The newest statement was sent to the Construction Investment Project Management Board of Thu Duc City, the investor of the aforementioned project, as their work causes a messy, congested scene on the street despite four previous warnings.

If they fail to deal with this issue again, they may face administrative fines.

The construction of the drainage project along Vo Van Ngan Street began in October 2020, but it has become sluggish and has yet to reach completion so far. 

The contractors for the project often leave equipment and materials on the sidewalk and do not re-cover the surface of each street section opened for the construction after they are done with the work.

They also failed to clean up after their workers or arrange adequate traffic regulatory forces to ensure environmental sanitation and traffic safety.

As a result, Vo Van Ngan Street is filled with dirt on dry days and is submerged in rainwater on rainy days.

Vehicles often get stuck on this street as well.

After receiving four warnings from the municipal Department of Transport, the investor issued a document pledging to learn from experience and not to let the issue repeat.

However, they appeared to have failed in keeping that promise.
