Heavy trucks banned from capital's streets

In an effort to avoid exacerbating expected traffic congestion on the National Assembly campaign’s final day, large trucks are banned from driving in Phnom Penh today.

From 5am until midnight, trucks will not be allowed to travel the streets of the capital, according to a directive signed by Phnom Penh Municipal Governor Pa Socheatvong and received by the Post yesterday morning.

Phnom Penh city spokesman Long Dimanche further urged truck drivers and merchants to cooperate with the ban, noting that multiple parties will likely fill the streets with vehicles campaigning.
