Uncertainty over impact of Tuol Kork overpass

The construction of a 420-metre flyover, which will connect Tuol Kork and Sen Sok districts, will not displace any local residents, officials said. “There will not be any effect on residents’ homes, just on the state land,” said Tuol Kork district governor Seng Ratanak. Sen Sok district governor Khuong Sreng, however, said residents would have no legal recourse if they were affected. “It is the state’s land, so there will be no compensation,” he said. Sia Phearum, secretariat director of the Housing Rights Task Force, said that rights groups were not yet sure about the number of houses likely to be affected because they have not yet seen the master plan.
