Phnom Penh Skytrain in the pipeline...

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.

So the train will go down Sihanouk and past HS's residence? He's already complained about noisy traffic, surely have a train trundling by at all hours won't impress him.

Artist's impression of the independence stop:

:facepalm: Um that's an abortion of an idea. Put the station a couple of blocks east.

That artist's conception isn't remotely realistic. It doesn't show motodops pissing on the station walls.

I've got a better idea; ban all cars from the inner city. Electric tuktuks and delivery vehicles and pedestrian and bicycle only streets.

A
More logical step would be to follow Bangkok’s lead and ban trucks from the inner city during day time. That would free up a lot of the roads as well as stop the daft concrete truck drivers from lining the side of the road causing a clusterfuck during rush hours.

Feasibility Study for Phnom Penh’s First Sky Train Under Way

Royal Government of Cambodia is undergoing a study for the construction of Phnom Penh capital's first sky train, according to Senior Minister H.E. Sun Chanthol.

The senior minister and minister of public works and transport shared the update with reporters here in Phnom Penh on June 5 after the signing ceremony of Cost Sharing Agreement between UNDP and Grab on Sustainable Urban Mobility for All Initiative SUMAI.

The study financed by Japan would be completed this year or next year, and the construction will follow, he added.

The first city sky train will run along an 18-kilometre route between downtown Phnom Penh to Phnom Penh International Airport.
