Over US$1,800 Million Invested in Cambodia’s First Skytrain

Royal Government of Cambodia plans to invest US$1,843 million to build a network of skytrain, connecting the Central Market to Chaom Chao by 2020.

The information was shared recently by H.E. Va Sim Sorya, Spokesperson at the Ministry of Public Works and Transport with the local media.

The development project of skytrain is technically led by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), and international engineering consultancy firm Nippon Koei had conducted feasibility study for the construction since September 2017, added the spokesperson.

The Cambodia’s first skytrain will stretch 19 kilometres between the two mentioned locations, and have 18 overpass and two underpass stations.

H.E. Va Sim Sorya continued that the construction of the skytrain has been planned to finish before 2023 in order to ease transportation during the SEA Games that Cambodia will host in the year.
