The capital adjustment stems from a rise in site clearance area needed for construction, with a rising number of affected households and site clearance costs.

Costs for site clearance have increased by VND827 billion ($34.6 million) in Tien Giang province and VND355 billion ($14.8 million) in Ben Tre province.

Last month, Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh examined the construction site and asked the Ministry of Transport and relevant agencies to review and supervise implementation, to ensure project quality, transparency, and no corruption.
