Phnom Penh-Sihanoukville expressway in Cambodia kicks off construction

March 25, 2019


Abstract : The Phnom Penh-Sihanoukville expressway project to be constructed by China Road & Bridge Corporation held its construction commencement ceremony on Friday in Kampong Speu.

BEIJING, March 25 (Xinhua) -- The Phnom Penh-Sihanoukville expressway project to be constructed by China Road & Bridge Corporation (CRBC) held ground breaking ceremony on Friday in Kampong Speu.

Spreading a full length of 190 kilometers and with total investment amounting to 2.019 billion U.S. dollars, the project is expected to become Cambodia's first expressway when completed.

The project, bearing fruits of China-Cambodia friendship, could help Cambodia in terms of improving logistics efficiency, cutting costs and shortening transportation time thus would make significant contribution to economic growth here, according to Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen during the ceremony.

As a key project under the Belt and Road cooperation, the expressway aims to connect Cambodia's capital economic zone to the country's largest deep-water port and drive social and economic development along the line, according to Chinese vice Foreign Minister Kong Xuanyou.
