Erm, no. Not unless you plan for transport of 5000 - 7000 tons per day for plant lifetime, which would be 70-100 years.

That's why all the plants here (and all over the world) are beside a great big limestone quarry.

Some clays and other materials that are not in such demand can be transported to the site alright.
then plz explain why there are huge cement factories on veng sreng road, the road south of the airport, no quarry within miles

Are you not talking about cement factories that make cement into concrete.

Those are concrete batching plants for the building sector. They mix sand, gravel, mortar mix and cement powder in various ratios.

A cement plant is to produce cement powder from raw materials.

If you had been there earlier, you would probably have seen many trucks also arriving there with bags of cement .

But lots of cement is carried in bulk containers, maybe they bag it there also.

They have distribution hubs up there, and at least two of the big 5 producers have bulk loads of bags being taken by rail to their PP stockyards, so probably yes.

Also, one of them is building a grinding plant up there to mill cement from imported clinker. It's centralized, so makes sense.
