New Diamond Island bridges to be built

The Overseas Cambodian Investment Group will begin construction of a US$2.5 million twin dragon bridge on Diamond Island at the end of this month, said Phnom Penh Municipal governor Kep Chuktema. The twin bridge will connect the north side of Diamond Island, also known as Koh Pich, with the southern road leading to Hun Sen Park. According to a statement posted on City Hall’s website earlier this week, each of the one-way bridges will measure 101 metres in length and comprise 3 lanes of traffic. A ground-breaking ceremony is scheduled for January 31.
