National Road 3 (Phnom Penh-Kampot) will cost more than US$219 million

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

A friend of mine did some road work for the Khmer Rouge. That road is still good. I don't think it cost anything.
I bet the cost of human lives was pretty high

The Improvement Project of National Road 3 linking Phnom Penh capital to Kampot province has now been almost 70 percent complete after it started in May 2018.

The achievement was shared this morning by the Ministry of Public Works and Transport (MPWT), adding that the project will be completed in 2022 as planned.

This 134.8-kilometre-long National Road 3 Improvement Project is estimated to cost more than US$200 million funded by the Royal Government’s budget and the referential buyer’s credit loan from the Government of China.
