Spien Tsubasa is the longest bridge in the Kingdom of Cambodia that crosses over the mighty Mekong River, located along National Road 1.
The bridge was built under the grant assistance of $127 million, the largest grant from the Government of Japan to Cambodia.
The official opening of the Spien Tsubasa Bridge will improve infrastructure and transportation on both sides of the river, and we strongly believe inauguration will support the development of Cambodia’s economy and the Mekong region.
The Spien Tsubasa will play an important role for the South Economic Corridor by connecting Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam to Dawei, Myanmar via Phnom Penh and Bangkok. In Cambodia, National Road 1 and 5 consists of this corridor.
This is corridor is expected to bring smoother road transportation between Cambodia, Vietnam, Thailand and Myanmar. Spien Tsubasa will reduce transportation time crossing Mekong River and will handle the future increase of transportation.
The government of Japan has continuously supported Cambodia government in repairing National Road 5.
The support to Cambodia from the Japanese people is not only building roads and bridges. It includes building hospitals and schools, and sending specialists in various field for capacity building.
