According to a statement released yesterday, EdC said the dismantling and installation of electrical lines will take place from June 29 to July 2, between 9am and 5pm.

Today, the areas affected will include Phnom Penh’s Chroy Changvar, Por Sen Chey, Russei Keo and Prek Pnov districts; Kandal’s Sa’ang and Ang Snuol districts; and Kampong Speu’s Kong Pisei district.

On July 1, the areas affected will include Phnom Penh’s Chroy Changvar, Prampi Makara and Por Sen Chey districts, Kandal’s Ang Snuol district and Kampong Speu’s Kong Pisei district.

On July 2, the areas affected include Phnom Penh’s Tuol Kork, Sen Sok and Por Sen Chey districts.
