Major Preah Sihanouk infrastructure project set to launch early December

Prime Minister Hun Sen is due to inaugurate 37 roads and two sewage treatment facilities in Preah Sihanouk province early next month, according to provincial governor Kuoch Chamroeun.

The infrastructure is part of the eagerly-anticipated “34-road project”, which was built at a cost of $294 million and spans 84km.

Provincial administration spokesman Kheang Phearum confirmed to The Post on that the additional three roads had been incorporated into the project.

Chamroeun on November 25 led a team of experts to a number of sites, to inspect the final building works and finishing touches in preparation for the event.

At Techo Square – formerly known as Poy Tamoung – in Sihanoukville’s Commune IV, where the inauguration is scheduled to take place, the governor told the construction company to speed up the clean-up process at the site, the administration said in a statement.

Chamroeun also visited the two-lion roundabout, which is currently under renovation to “enhance the beauty of the town” and greet local and international leisure travellers to the coastal province down the road, it added.

Cambodia made the most of the Covid tourism lull to build and revamp infrastructure in tourist hotspots, notably of the similar 38-road project in Siem Reap province that is estimated to cost about $150 million.
