Use app to report road damage: ministry

The Ministry of Public Works and Transport on January 21 reiterated a call to the public to report road damage via the ministry’s “Road Care” app, to ensure prompt repair.

The latest plea comes after a section of National Road 1 at the 45.15km mark — in Samrong Thom commune of eastern Kandal province’s Kien Svay district — was repaired, thanks to a tip-off through the app, the ministry said in a statement.

“Potholes in the road could lead to traffic accidents. Public reports to the road repair team are a superb way to get involved and reduce the number of wrecks, as well as improve the maintenance of these thoroughfares,” it said.

However, the ministry has previously noted that only roads under its purview – such as national roads – would be repaired upon a report, pointing out that others are under the authority of municipal or provincial authorities.

The ministry invited the public to download the app from the App Store through roadcare.mpwt.gov.kh/ios or the Play Store at roadcare.mpwt.gov.kh/android.
