China Railway International Group Co., Ltd presented three designs for construction of the Phnom Penh-Bavet expressway project on 07 September.
The Phnom Penh-Bavet expressway is expected to cost approximately over US$2 billion and stretches over 135 kilometres departing from Phnom Penh, crossing the provinces of Kandal, Prey Veng, and Svay Rieng before reaching Bavet city.
This expressway can allow a maximum speed of 120 kilometres per hour.
The company started conducting study on the construction in December last year. It will submit the financial report of the expressway construction in mid-October this year.
Based on the report, there are three options for the expressway construction, and according to the government will thoroughly study the three options in order to choose a proper one by taking into consideration social and economic impacts and construction budget.
Once the construction completed, the Phnom Penh-Bavet expressway will become the Cambodia’s second expressway, after the 190 kilometre-long Phnom Penh-Sihanoukville expressway.
