Overpass plans need work, says City Hall

City Hall has returned the latest blueprint for a proposed second Kbal Thnal overpass to developer Overseas Cambodia Investment Corporation (OCIC) for revisions after finding an initial plan failed to adequately address congestion in the area.

“After examining the blueprint, we find it does not fully solve the problem of congestion,” Phnom Penh Deputy Governor Suy Serith said yesterday in the wake of a Tuesday meeting on the matter.

He added that he did not know how many families living in the area might be affected by the construction.

According to Serith, the overpass connecting to Hun Sen Boulevard will replace an existing petrol station at that area with a new roundabout.

“We know for sure the gasoline station will be affected . . . We don’t know how many families live along the road, but they will be affected too,” he said.

Serith added that it could take as many as five more meetings to come up with a solution that solves the area’s traffic issues while minimising the impacts resulted from the construction.
