The study will be conducted by Borey Peng Hout, a leading local real estate developer.
In a meeting Thursday chaired by Khuong Sreng, the governor of Phnom Penh, the municipality said the underpass, which will be located in Chbar Ampov district’s Niroth commune, will alleviate traffic congestion in the area.
The underpass will connect PH ECO Mall, located in Boeng Snor area, and National Road 1. It will be used for vehicle traffic.
Meas Methpheakdey, Phnom Penh Municipality spokesman, told Khmer Times that the company has already begun work on the study.
A representative of Borey Peng Hout, who asked not to be named, said, “Traffic in Boeng Snor area is terrible. Having this underpass will improve the situation, particularly for commuters along National Road 1.”
Sorn Seap, founder and CEO of Key Real Estate, highlighted the project’s benefits to the area.
“It will not only benefit the investors but it will also benefit society by contributing to the development of the city’s infrastructure.”
Phnom Penh has two tunnels: the Techo tunnel and the Stung Meanchey tunnel. An underpass in the Chaom Chao roundabout, near the airport, is currently under construction.
