Phnom Penh municipal governor Khuong Sreng is allowing people to temporarily use a new flyover from the morning of December 31 to better facilitate the flow of traffic at the construction site of the Chaom Chao flyover and underpass during the New Year holiday celebrations.

The new arched bridge is 200 m long and 5.25 m wide and runs one-way from Choam Chao Boulevard onto the flyover and then curves to the left to connect traffic to National Road 3 in Por Sen Chey district.

In a notice, Khuong Sreng said on December 30 that construction of the bridge was 92 per cent finished and was scheduled for completion in March 2022. The bridge and five underpasses of the eight that are planned have been put into use for the present.

He also requested that Phnom Penh municipal police, Phnom Penh military police, Por Sen Chey district administrators and the Phnom Penh Department of Public Works and Transport cooperate to manage traffic conditions and maintain safety over the holiday.
