Phnom Penh’s third ring road inauguration postponed

: The official opening of Phnom Penh's third ring road, valued at $273 million, which was initially planned for June 30, has been postponed until after the National Election in July.

Prime Minister Samdech Techo Hun Sen made the announcement during a gathering with over 18,000 factory workers and employees in Phnom Penh this morning.

Even though the road is currently being used on a temporary basis, the Prime Minister emphasized that the official inauguration would take place at a later date.

Instead, on June 30, Samdech Techo Hun Sen will host an event with factory workers and employees in Pursat province, which was rescheduled from June 23.

The third ring road spans 53 kilometers in length and has a width of 22 meters. It connects (NR) No. 4 in Sangkat Chaom Chao 3, Khan Pursenchey, Phnom Penh, to NR1 in Dei Ith commune, Kean Svay district. This new infrastructure will facilitate cross-border transportation, enhance international trade, and transform the surrounding areas into a thriving development zone.

In addition to the ring road, the construction project also encompasses four flyovers and eight bridges.

The Ministry of Public Works and Transports (MPWT) is currently conducting a feasibility study for the construction of Phnom Penh's fourth ring road, which will link NR51 to NR41.
