Cambodia Aims to Improve Transport and Logistics Sectors

Authored by

Earlier this year, Senior Minister and Minister of Public Works and Transport Sun Chanthol mentioned that the main strategy of the Royal Government for national economic enhancement continues to be the development of transport infrastructure and logistics sectors. Specifically, the Royal Government is focusing investment in high-speed rail, sky trains, and subways. Some major projects include the Phnom Penh-Sihanoukville Expressway, the proposed Phnom Penh-Bavet Expressway project, the Phnom Penh-Siem Reap Expressway project, and the Phnom Penh-Poipet Railway to MRT. The government is also considering high-speed upgrades for the country’s rail network and a canal that would connect the Bassac River with the Kampot seaport to facilitate water-borne transport of manufactured goods are also being considered.

Other relevant projects in 2023 include the Korea-Cambodia Friendship Bridge, a two-sectioned bridge spanning the Mekong and Tonle Sap Rivers that will cost an estimated $245 million USD, and the extensive Koh Norea urban development project creating a satellite city which will develop residential, commercial, and entertainment properties in Chbar Ampov, a peninsula along the Mekong River.
