New beachside Kep road about to break ground

Kep provincial authorities are preparing to break ground on construction of a new concrete road along the beach on March 1. The project is funded by a $10 million loan from the Asian Development Bank (ADB).

Vao Sokha, Kep provincial deputy governor, on February 24 led a meeting with local authorities and the armed forces to prepare the groundbreaking ceremony.

The provincial administration said the road along the beach is part of the second phase of the Mekong Subregion Tourism Infrastructure for Inclusive Growth Project.

The 11km long road – to be constructed with a width from 9-15m – is expected to be completed in 22 months.

The Ministry of Public Works and Transport said the road will stretch from Kep town to Angkol Beach. ADB also provided $1.6 million to build a new tourism port on nearby Rabbit Island.
