Road conditions - Cambodia

Do you have a Cambodian trip report you want to share? Post it here, and feel free to link to your blog if it's a travel blog for Cambodia, South East Asia, or anywhere really. You can ask and answer questions about travel advice in Cambodia or just share your pictures and videos with us. Most people who live in or visit Cambodia have also checked out nearby countries like Vietnam, Thailand, Laos, Myanmar, Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines, and you can get to most of these countries by traveling overland, so put any travel plans, reviews or questions here. Discussions about dirt bike trails in here as well.

I drove that same route about a year ago but can't remember there being any roadwork going on at that time.. At least nothing that slowed me down any. I won't swear to it though. I do spend a lot of time on different roads and it is possible my memory is failing me. :D

Goes beyond the Prek Ta Meak bridge turn. Was out that way recently, perhaps 5 to 10 Km beyond there and it's terrible.
I didn't go farther than that as I turned on to NR8 from there, but that's good to know. I rarely go up that way though.. I prefer to take the NR8/NR11 route if I'm going to Kampong Cham/Kratie, etc. rather than NR6A.

The answer is yes, but the two bridges aren't finished yet so I heard the ferry guys are charging big money for the crossings.

I haven't done it myself since they've built the road but got some first hand account when I was in Mondulkiri a few weeks ago. The road is a smooth (and wide) red dirt road. A few sandy patches but nothing to worry about on a car. You can easily do 90km/h. I know trucks have been taking it so for sure you can drive it. I don't know how much the ferries cost, but it can't be that expensive. Just a bit more than normal ferries I'd imagine as the guys are probably trying to milk what they can before the bridges are operational. Best to wait for some reliable info from someone who just drove it for that.
