Malaysia has donated used railway tracks worth about $2.1 million to Cambodia as
part of regional efforts to build a railway from Singapore to southern China.
The first installment of tracks left Malaysia on October 30, with Malaysian Transport
Minister Chan Kong Choy saying it would help fill in 48 km of missing rails between
Sisophon and Poipet, according to Bernama news agency.
The project, including constructing railway stations and related infrastructure,
has been estimated to cost $15 billion. ASEAN hopes the link will be ready by 2015.
