Description

The project concerns the rehabilitation of the existing Prek Kdam - Thlea Ma’am Section of National Road No. 5 which connects Phnom Penh to the Thai border. Moreover, crucial to this phase of rehabilitation is the construction of a bypass to reroute the road around the Kampong Chhnang and Oudong city areas. The overall objective is to increase connectivity in Cambodia while contributing towards the development of the country.
