Families in Preah Sihanouk ordered to make way for roads

The Preah Sihanouk Provincial Hall has set a Thursday deadline for 29 families to dismantle buildings impeding work on road projects and negatively impacting sewage systems in Sihanoukville’s Commune IV.

“In case they do not dismantle the buildings as instructed, the provincial administration will execute administrative measures and will not be responsible for any damages or losses to properties,” a provincial hall statement said.

The 29 families were to be relocated by Thursday after being notified in advance, the statement noted.

Provincial hall spokesman Kheang Phearum said on Monday that 30 per cent of 34 road projects in the area had been completed.

“The locations to be dismantled are along streams and public roads, which impact sewage systems and road construction projects,” he said.

The provincial hall said the 34 roads stretch 84,505m.
