The city People’s Committee and the World Bank asked that the contractors’ commitment be written down into legal documents and each construction package be granted World Bank permission in order to be carried out.

Should contractors fail to finish construction on time or not receive approval from the World Bank, they will have their contract terminated or their work suspended.

Besides, the HMCC People’s Committee also asked the HCMC Department of Traffic and Public Works to draw a substitution plan in case the contractors fail to fulfill their commitments.
