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.

4 km underground..in a city built on a marsh, plagued by flash-flooding. Yeah, right.
Maybe they should wait and see how the carpark under the Freedom Park turns out first.
There's this weird yellow gantry they have over that construction, maybe that's normal for subterranean constructions but I haven't seen one used like that here before. It's hard to see as the site is surrounded by a high hoarding.

Over US$1,800 Million [to be] Invested in Cambodia’s First Skytrain
AKP Phnom Penh, September 06, 2019 --

Royal Government of Cambodia plans to invest US$1,843 million to build a network of skytrain, connecting the Central Market to Chaom Chao by 2020.

The information was shared recently by H.E. Va Sim Sorya, Spokesperson at the Ministry of Public Works and Transport with the local media.

The development project of skytrain is technically led by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), and international engineering consultancy firm Nippon Koei had conducted feasibility study for the construction since September 2017, added the spokesperson.

The Cambodia’s first skytrain will stretch 19 kilometres between the two mentioned locations, and have 18 overpass and two underpass stations.

H.E. Va Sim Sorya continued that the construction of the skytrain has been planned to finish before 2023 in order to ease transportation during the SEA Games that Cambodia will host in the year.

...and how long will that take to pay off?! I mean, fares are going to have to be lower than the the BTS if the locals are to enjoy such modern stuff.

Enjoy in the beginning. Like Bangkok it will be packed after a while and basically unusable at certain times.
