Phnom Penh - Battambang Rail Line Reopens

T he Phnom Penh - Battambang rail line reopened early September and services between

the two cities could soon run three times a week, according to Li Borin, director

of Battambang's Railway Service.

Quoted in an Agence Khmer de Presse September 9, Li said 70 kilometers of track in

Battambang province destroyed by Khmer Rouge mines earlier this year had been repaired

during a three month restoration program.

Two years of concerted attacks by the KR had cost the Royal government $600,000,

Li said.
