Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design

National, city, and commune government officials, metro implementing and operation authorities, development partners, small business owners, potential affected community representatives, and relevant civil society organizations will be closely involved in the project design preparation. During preparation of the project design including a resettlement plan and Environmental Management Plan, individual and group consultations will be fielded to consult with the potential affected people across a range of sites in urban areas. A participatory approach will be used to determine the location and design of project features, such as station entrance location, underpasses and footbridges for local communities.

By December 2015, the Management Authority for Urban Railways (MAUR), Department of Transport (DOT) and ADB had agreed to the PPTA scope. Because the scope of BRT from Ben Thanh to An Suong had not been included in the Ho Chi Minh Urban Transport Master Plan, DOT decided to exclude the BRT from this investment. In addition, HCMC People's Committee (HCMC PC) decided not to implement HCMC Traffic Control Center using ADB's cofinance. Hence, only MRT Line 5 Stage 1 and MRT Line 5 Integration have been considered by ADB in the scope.

During the Country Programming Mission in early 2016, as it had become clear that the MRT Line 5 Stage 1 Project could not be completed within the 10-year availability period limit of the MFF modality, HCMC PC, Ministry of Planning and Investment, and ADB agreed to change the modality into separate stand-alone projects. The current pipeline includes the MRT Line 5 Stage 1 Project in the 2020 longlist of the 2018-2020 COBP. The Line 5 Integration Project is expected to be processed after 2020 to align with the MRT Line 5 Stage 1 Project implementation schedule.

MAUR has been recruiting consulting service for front-end engineering design preparation and implementation support (FEED) to be funded by ADB TA Project since 2015. The FEED consulting service will produce designs to be used for (i) procurement of works and equipment packages and (ii) ADB's project due diligence. It is expected that the FEED consultants will be mobilized in Q2 2018 and complete service in Q4 2019. During the service, the consultant will conduct necessary survey and consultation with stakeholders to assist MAUR in forming front-end engineering design and relevant documents, such as procurement plan, financing plan, and safeguard documents (resettlement plan and environment management plan).
