New bridge for the Mekong.

Post by CEOCambodiaNews » Sun May 28, 2017 3:51 pm

Mekong bridge construction gets underway
25 May 2017
A bridge being constructed over the Mekong River will connect the provinces of Kampong Cham and Tboung Khmum once completed.
Nou Vannak, director of the Ministry of Public Works and Transport’s technical department, told Post Property that construction works had recently started, however no official announcement of a new bridge had been made by the department.

According to Vannak, the bridge is 13.5 metres wide and 1.13 kilometres in length. The construction of the bridge is estimated to cost more than $5 million.

“This bridge is a very important connection between Kampong Cham and Tboung Khmum, which are strong economic provinces,” Vannak said.
He believes the bridge will be able to ease traffic congestion and provide an efficient route for agricultural produce transportation.

Currently, crossing that area of the Mekong River requires a ferry from Neak Leung in Prey Veng province...

Looks like we should have bought land there before they decided to build a bridge.

Housing Development Association of Cambodia president Ly Hour has unveiled plans to erect a borey in Tboung Khmum province.

Hour, who is also the chairman of Ly Hour Group, told Post Property he had purchased about 200 hectares of land in Tboung Khmum town which was separated from the province of Kampong Cham in 2013.

The borey will also have a retail component, with plans for an accompanying mall to be developed.

“The borey project will start after the 2018 election, and the construction will proceed according to the market’s needs,” Hour said.
