The Chom Chao flyover and underpass were officially put into use this morning under the presidency of Prime Minister Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo Hun Sen.
The new infrastructure, broken ground on June 29, 2018, was constructed by Overseas Cambodia Investment Corporation (OCIC), a local construction company, for a period of 30 months at a total cost of some US$22 million.
Samdech Techo Hun Sen congratulated the Phnom Penh municipal administration and residents on this new achievement which will help not only facilitate the people’s travel, but also enhance the beauty and development in the capital.
Phnom Penh capital has currently six flyovers: the Kbal Thnal Flyover inaugurated on June 24, 2010; January 7 Flyover on Jan. 6, 2012; Stung Meanchey Flyover on July 31, 2014; January 5 Flyover on Jan. 5, 2016; Stop Psar Dey Hoy Flyover on July 2, 2018; and the freshly-inaugurated Chom Chao flyover on Mar. 31, 2022.
Another flyover of 483 metres long, 15.8 metres wide and 5 metres high has been being constructed along the National Road No. 5 in Sangkat Russey Keo, Khan Russey Keo.
The Phnom Penh municipal administration is also planning to build a new flyover at the Century Plaza intersection to facilitate traffic for residents crossing Street 2004, as well as the Russian Federation Blvd. and Street 2011. It is scheduled to break ground after the official opening of the Chom Chao flyover and underpass.
