Cambodia's nationalroad No 6A is going to be enlarged on a strech of 248 kilometers with Chinese help. The road will be widened from the current 7 meters to 12 meters with some places up to 25 meters, and work on the project will begin from Bathey district in Kampong Cham province in the east to Siem Reap province in the northwest, as Xinhuanet announces. "This road is very important to connect traveling from Phnom Penh City to various provinces including the tourism province of Siem Reap and to the Thai border," Cambodian premier Hun Sen said.
Hun Sen added, that "to date, China has built tar-paved roads in a total length of more than 2,000 kilometers in Cambodia, making China the largest donor in road development in Cambodia". China's Shanghai Construction (Group) General Company is responsible for the road construction - as in many cases before. The road is expected to be completed in 42 months, Minister of Transport Tram Iv Tek said. He added, the project would cost 248 million U.S. dollars, which will be covered by a concessional loan from the government of China.
