Construction of New Lightweight Railway in Kandal Discussed

Kandal provincial administration and a Chinese firm have discussed the construction project of a new lightweight railway connecting the Techo International Airport in Kandal province with Phnom Penh capital.

The discussion took place in a meeting between H.E. Kong Sophorn, Governor of Kandal province, and a delegation from China Metro in Kandal province on Aug. 22.

The new railway will be a new achievement for Kandal province, easing the transport of the locals and reducing traffic congestion in the province.

The Royal Government of Cambodia is working hard to develop the transport sector and welcomes all investments that contribute positively to the effort.

Encompassing 2,600 hectares in Takhmao town and Kandal Stung district of Kandal province and Bati district of Takeo province, the Techo International Airport is expected to put into operation in 2025.
