Capital residents protest airport expressway

Roughly 100 Phnom Penh residents who believe they will be affected by a planned expressway leading from the airport to the city centre protested again at the Ministry of Public Works yesterday, demanding that community representatives be included on the committee that settles such matters as relocation and payouts.

Ministry secretary of state Lim Sidenin accepted a letter presented by the protesters and said a public forum on the project would be held in the next two weeks.
