The Phnom Penh-Bavet Expressway’s groundbreaking in June

PHNOM PENH: On June 7, 2023, the expressway that links Phnom Penh and Bavet City in Svay Rieng Province will be inaugurated, which is adjacent to Vietnam.

The Ministry of Public Works and Transport revealed that the groundbreaking ceremony for Cambodia’s second expressway would be chaired by its Prime Minister, Samdech Techo Hun Sen.

The Senior Minister of Public Works and Transport, Sun Chanthol, reported that the expressway will stretch roughly 138 kilometers long and feature a lengthy bridge across the Mekong River, measuring about 5 kilometers when the bridge and connecting road are taken into account.

The projected budget is around $1.638 million, according to the Senior Minister, which is lesser than the Sihanoukville budget, but the road will also be shorter than the Sihanoukville Expressway. The Senior Minister anticipates that the road will be finished by the end of 2026 or the beginning of 2027.

Furthermore, the expressway is crucial in linking China from Burma to Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam, as per Senior Minister Sun Chanthol.
