PHNOM PENH: The construction of over 11 kilometers of coastal road that links Koh Tonsay Port in Kep Province to Angkor Beach is underway and is currently about 60 to 65% complete under the guidance of the Asian Development Bank, costing around $10.5 million.
Horm Nimol, ADB’s Deputy Chief Technical Adviser, stated that the preparation of foundations and drainage systems has been concluded in the first stage, and the rest of the construction will be completed in the next two stages.
Although the rainy season may cause some hindrances, it will not impact the project’s completion, scheduled within the next three months. The coastal road will be a crucial tourist route that connects Kep Beach and Angkol Beach.
In the future, this will lead to a surge in the number of tourists visiting Kep province while also reducing congestion on Kep Beach.
The coastal road project is a subset of the ADB’s Phase II Greater Mekong Subregion Sustainable Growth Tourism Infrastructure project, which also features two other sub-projects: the Koh Tonsay port project, which has recently been transferred to the provincial administration, and the newly launched landfill.
