City Hall considering two new overpasses

Phnom Penh Governor Khoung Sreng on Wednesday discussed the construction of two overpass projects, one at the Choam Chao roundabout near the airport and another at the Kbal Thnal intersection near Monivong Bridge.

The governor held a meeting of City Hall officials to go over plans for overpasses at the two junctions that frequently face traffic jams. Sreng asked officials to find a way to ensure that the project can be green lighted at the earliest.

“[I] urge the meeting to have an articulate solutions for the areas so that the construction can start soon and it could relieve [traffic] congestion at Kbal Thnal and Choam Chao roundabouts in the near future,” he said, according to a post on Facebook.

A plan for the overpass at Choam Chao, a site with frequent traffic congestion, shows an elaborate crisscrossing of streets connecting National Roads 3 and 4 to Russian and Veng Sreng Boulevards.

The capital has seen an increase in public infrastructure projects, mostly focused on transportation. An expanding fleet of buses, a new water taxi and an airport rail link have all sought to ease growing congestion in recent months.
