The feasibility study for Cambodia’s third expressway linking Phnom Penh capital to Siem Reap cultural province will start very soon.
The notice was shared by the Ministry of Public Works and Transport in a letter to the administrations at related capital and provinces on Mar. 28.
The ministry requested the capital and provincial governors to coordinate with relevant units and local authorities in their respective jurisdiction to cooperate with the China Bridge and Road Corporation that will conduct the study.
The expressway will contribute to reducing travel time and facilitate trade and businesses.
Cambodia's first expressway, connecting Phnom Penh to the deep-sea port in Sihanoukville of Preah Sihanouk province, was opened for public use on Oct. 1, 2022 while the construction of the second one from the capital to Bavet of Svay Rieng province is scheduled to be built in 2023.
