The first-ever expressway in Cambodian is under construction, linking Phnom Penh to Sihanoukville. Many may know this project. However, did you know some special features of the road?

Vasim Soriya, the spokesperson of the Ministry of Public Works and Transportation, told Property Asia that this route has some special features different from some simple ones, such as 3 parking lots, 5 small and 80 large bridges with the total 601 meters, 6 flyovers, fences on both sides to prevent animals and travelers crossing, 1 car care service, short distance stretch of only 190 kilometers, and speed from 90 up to 160 kph.

The groundbreaking ceremony of this Chines-invested expressway took place on 22 March 2019. 

This 2-billion U.S. dollar project will enhance transportation capacity and time-efficiency to boost the Cambodian economy.
