Phnom Penh-Sihanoukville Expressway Underway

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.

"The expressway will be completed in 48 months."

From the road construction projects I've seen, 96 months is more likely.

It looks very awesome and much safer. Also looks like some highway rest stops are designed to be built too.

Yes, of-course there will be rest stops. That's where you make the money either by renting it out to someone or by selling your own overpriced crap food with no competition.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

Looks like fast forward, but then again when you see the constructions going up in Sihanoukville in real time , it also looks like FF on video. :?

Between Kratie and Strung Trung for most of the way the Chinese built or paid for the road don't know how long ago but it's one lane each way plus wide curbside for motos to travel it's one of the better roads I've rode along so something good comes from Chinese in this case
Is the old M4 going to stay or get incorporated into the new highway

M4 = NR4? Yes it's going to stay. Expressway is built separately to it.
