victory hill, Sihanoukville, main drag tarmacked?!

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

This doesn't have only up sides.
A few of our frequent residents alcoholic elderies have been hit by cars while crossing the street already.
Motorbike accidents are more frequents and at a greater speed.
Trucks and other heavy load transports are driving way to fast.
A dumbcunt with a white Lexus rx300 is driving past and forth every night at speeds of up to 100kh as do some others cars and bikes on a less frequent basis.
Locals haven't taken all this into account and let their youngests free to roam around, giving opportunity for a disaster to happen.

The tarmack and drain job to the New Beach hotel is of reasonable quality but they should have installed a couple of speed bumps before and after the busiest crossroads.

[edit: meanwhile it is he perfect road for any long board stuntman wanabee]

Funny you should say that, the video i saw on u tube had a motorbike rider going through quite fast. Yea, they should have put in speed bumps. They still can.

Maybe there needs to be bollards in place for night time safety of pedestrians, and a traffick policeman?

yeah the roads are great to drive on now, but agree people (drunk expats/tourists/locals) do tend to drive down there at high speed (ive been guilty of it once or twice)
the bar strip is concreted

WOW!

That's an awesome cam! Pity there aren't more with better barang streetview scenes.

>Because of Victory Hill's, small but compact nature, a live cam would also be cool there.

Good idea! :)
