? Cambodia Construction and Property News #Week60 (ព័ត៍មានសំណង់និងអចលនទ្រព្យប្រចាំសប្តាហ៍)

Hello, welcome to Construction & Property weekly news. Every week, we bring hot news regarding
construction and property in Cambodia to you. With no further delay,
let’s go to the news contents of this week. Government urges review of Phnom Penh-Bavet Expressway Public works ministry to begin
construction of major roads and bridge New Sihanoukville special economic zone proposed Well-organised transport networks and
affordable housing stimulate economic growth Infrastructure Projects in Singapore Named as
Finalists in Infrastructure 2019 Awards Program Government urges review of Phnom Penh-Bavet Expressway Samdech Techo Hun Sen, Cambodian PM has
called on all relevant Cambodians stakeholders to review the feasibility of constructing
the Phnom Penh-Bavet expressway which has been postponed since the
completion of the feasibility study in 2017. During a forum on investment and trade
between Cambodia and Vietnam held in Hanoi, Prime Minister urged the fast-tracking of the
expressway project from Phnom Penh to Bavet to enhance the trade and transportation between the
two countries. The Phnom Penh-Bavet expressway would terminate at
the important south-eastern international border crossing between Cambodian and Vietnam and
provide a direct connection to Ho Chi Minh city. According to a study by the Ministry
of Public Works and Transport and JICA the 160km Phnom Penh-Bavet expressway
would cost an estimated US$3.9 billion, almost double the cost of the expressway from Phnom Penh to
Sihanoukville. Public works ministry to begin construction of major roads
and bridge According to H.E Sun Chanthol,
Minister of the Ministry of Public Works and Transport, the ministry will soon begin construction of five major roads and
a bridge as soon as feasibility studies and budgeting have been concluded. According to the minister, those roads include National Road No. 10 connecting Samlot to Koh Kong, National Road No. 2, National Road No.41 linking National
Road No.4 to National Road No. 3 National Road No. 31 connecting Beak Khos to Kompong Trach, and National Road No.33 from Kampot to Kep. In addition, the ministry is also studying the
bridge crossing the Mekong River from Kratie. New Sihanoukville special economic zone proposed Two companies have proposed 1,600
hectares of land in Sihanoukville province to be developed into a special economic
zone through land reclassification, according to the provincial administration. On 07 October, Sihanoukville
provincial governor H.E Kouch Chamroeun held a meeting to discuss the proposal
with the Stung Hav district governor and other officials from relevant departments. The two companies have requested the
government to reclassify state land located in Keo Pors Commune, Stung Hav District as their permanent commercial land which will be used to develop a special economic
zone in line with the government’s policy. The Cambodian government has recently approved the
construction of another special economic zone project on more than 55 hectares of land in Sihanoukville. Well-organised transport networks and
affordable housing stimulate economic growth Strengthening the efficiency of transport
networks and reasonably-priced housing are a major contributor to keeping the economic
engine firing on all in cylinders in Cambodia as well as in other Asia countries. Ear Sophal, an associate professor of
diplomacy and world affairs in Los Angeles said being stuck in a traffic jam is never anyone’s desire. People want transport networks that
will increase their home’s values. Outside of Cambodia, living near a
subway station increases a home’s value. Additionally, H.E Sun Chanthol, recently announced plans to build an sky train from Phnom Penh city
to the new National Stadium (Prek Pnov), a distance of about 18 kilometres, to facilitate smooth traffic flow when
Cambodia hosts the SEA Games in 2023. Infrastructure Projects in Singapore Named as Finalists in
