PHNOM PENH: According to the Department of Public Works and Transport of Phnom Penh on March 4, 2023, the construction of the Koh Pich-Koh Nora cable-stayed bridge project had reached 62% completion.
The construction will be finished by the end of 2023, according to the plan. The bridge connects the center of Phnom Penh to National Road No. 1 and will serve as an important gateway to help alleviate traffic congestion on the two Monivong Bridges.
As a result of the Preah Monivong flyover traffic congestion, the Phnom Penh Capital Administration has recently introduced a new solution, planning to launch another ferry from Koh Nora to Chroy Changva (at the point of Sokha Hotel, Phnom Penh).
Residents in the area urged the Royal Government to expedite the construction of the concrete bridge cable connecting Koh Nora and Koh Pich as soon as possible, citing it as the best solution to traffic congestion.
The bridge project between Koh Nora and Koh Pich is located in Sangkat Niroth, Khan Chbar Ampov, Phnom Penh, and is funded by the Overseas Cambodian Investment Company (OCIC) with an investment worth $38 million, which is managed by the Phnom Penh Capital Administration.
