Taking the low road

A short tunnel at the ‘Techno Flyover’ will be temporarily opened this week to ease traffic passing through the intersection of Mao Tse-Tung and Russian boulevards, near the Institute of Technology of Cambodia in Phnom Penh’s Tuol Kork district.

‘The Techno underground road construction is 97 per cent completed,’ Phnom Penh Municipal Governor Pa Socheatvong wrote on his Facebook page, explaining that the road, which is currently being paved, will be open for use on Saturday.

Long Dimanche, Phnom Penh municipality spokesman, said the new sky bridge is intended to help relieve congestion in the area.

‘We hoped that the underground road will ease the city’s ever-worsening traffic congestion from Tuol Kork district,’ said Dimanche. According to Dimanche, the project carries a price tag of $14 million.
