Phnom Penh mass transit project studies rolling forward
The feasibility study for a high-capacity public transit-metro train for Phnom Penh will finish next month, as the government seeks help or loans from regional banks.
The update was made by Sun Chanthol, Senior Minister and Minister of Public Works and Transport on Tuesday during a virtual meeting with Alexander D. Nash, Urban Development Specialist at the Asian Development Bank (ADB).
Chanthol said the private sector conducted study is nearly complete and a second mass transit project study, for a mono rail, has been completed.
Chanthol asked the ADB to check the studies and added that with private sector investment, the projects will contribute to reducting traffic congestion in Phnom Penh and enhance rapid development the country. Mr. Nash said the ADB will check the studies and coordinate on the proposal. Khmer Times
