Rain stops important border road works

NINE kilometres of road works from Preah Vihear's Kou village to Ta Moan Thom temple have been postponed due to flooding and rain, officials said Sunday.

"We can't build the road due to the ongoing rain. We have postponed it until the rain stops," said military engineer Kvan Siem.

Ho Vuthy, deputy commander of Border Military Unit 402, said that the current condition of the road is a big problem for soldiers travelling to Ta Moan Thom and Ta Krabey temples.

"We have trouble travelling from one place to another place along border. But it is our custom to do it this way," he told the Post on Sunday.
