PP-Sihanoukville expressway could start construction before year-end

Construction of an expressway between Phnom Penh and Sihanoukville could start towards the end of 2017. According to Va Simsorya, spokesman for the Ministry of Public Works and Transport, studies on the road’s impact and budget have already been completed, with just the details of the contract between the government and a private Chinese company to be decided. While he could not reveal the exact cost of the project, he said it would be above $1.5bn. The expressway would extend 190km and would connect from Phnom Penh in the Kov Srov area extending along National Road 4, moving towards Kampong Speu province before ending in the seaside town of Sihanoukville. Sun Chanthol, Minister of Public Works and Transport, recently told local media that the PP-Sihanoukville expressway would comprise four lanes and would prohibit motorcycles from using the road.
