The ministry said in a recent report to the National Assembly that there were still items on the list that the Chinese contractor has not checked off for the Cat Linh – Ha Dong metro line.

The contractor, China Railway Sixth Group Co Ltd, imported 99% of the equipment needed for the project and their installation is now at 97%.

But the contractor had not provided adequate safety certificates for the installed equipment and the consortium assigned to the safety assessment was unable to complete the task.

The Ministry of Transport has requested a consortium of French companies Apave, Certifier and Tricc to grant temporary safety certificates for the project so that it can be put into commercial operation soon.

Apave-Certifier-Tricc said earlier this month that a complete evaluation could take another six months, which means the metro will not begin commercial operation until next year, even though Deputy Prime Minister Trinh Dinh Dung has set a deadline for this year.

The Cat Linh-Ha Dong metro line began to be deployed in 2011 and was originally scheduled to be completed in 2013.But a number of obstacles, including a loan disbursement issue with China that was only resolved in December 2017, has stalled it for years.

Finally, the subway entered the test phase in March with all 13 carriages being tested on both lines.The ministry wanted commercial operations to begin by the end of April, but this deadline has also been missed.

The project cost has more than doubled from the original 8 dong.8 trillion ($378 million) to 18 trillion ($774 million), according to state auditors.

The line currently has one percent of work left, mostly in finishing prospects.When completed, the country's first metro line will run for 13 kilometers from Cat Linh station in the center of Dong Da district to Yen Nghia station in the southwest of Ha Dong district.
