Cambodia news in English! Here you'll find all the breaking news from Cambodia translated into English for our international readership and expat community to read and comment on. The majority of our news stories are gathered from the local Khmer newspapers, but we also bring you newsworthy media from Cambodia before you read them anywhere else. Because of the huge population of the capital city, most articles are from Phnom Penh, but Siem Reap, Sihanoukville, and Kampot often make the headlines as well. We report on all arrests and deaths of foreigners in Cambodia, and the details often come from the Cambodian police or local Khmer journalists. As an ASEAN news outlet, we also publish regional news and events from our neighboring countries. We also share local Khmer news stories that you won't find in English anywhere else. If you're looking for a certain article, you may use our site's search feature to find it quickly.

So strange seeing the artist's concepts, with no overloaded trucks, vans or motos on the road.

If only Cambodia looked that nice... A toll though? Is this part of the plan?

Yes ,,, It's user pays. Probably free for a while to get people hooked onto the idea of using it.
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.

Got it. That's probably the only idea they could come up with to pay off the interest fees on that Chinese loan

Will the tolls keep off the slow moving 'local' traffic (push bikes, mopeds pulling flatbed delivery carts etc) off the road? If so, it might help prevent the carnage predicted in another previous topic on this subject. Or will they just sneak on and off somehow?

I'm just realizing this... the Cambodian DOT doesn't have laws/ policies preventing mopeds and tuk tuks from using freeways, right? Not that it would change anything really, but I can already see the kinda shit show it's gonna be if a foreigner runs over a fucktard making a U-turn on the freeway.
