City Hall yesterday reminded drivers of large trucks that their use is prohibited at certain times and places.

There were still a large numbers of trucks and concrete mixing vehicles driving in and out of Phnom Penh, causing congestion and traffic accidents, City Hall said.

Non-compliant drivers would now see their vehicle seized, it added.

City Hall issued a notice yesterday reminding drivers that there were restrictions that apply to vehicle types and sizes.

“City Hall will seize any vehicles violating the guidelines without any liability for loss of time, equipment or other goods,” the notice reads.

According to the guidelines in place, small trucks from three to six tonnes and large trucks from six to ten tonnes are prohibited from entering the city from 6am to 9am and 6pm to 8pm, while concrete trucks are prohibited from 6am to 9am and 4pm to 8pm.

In addition, heavy trucks weighing from ten to 24 tonnes are permitted from 8pm to 6am only.

All trucks weighing five tonnes or higher are prohibited from driving through Chroy Changvar Bridge, old and new Monivong bridges, Kbal Thnal Sky Bridge, and Makara Sky Bridge.

Phnom Penh resident Chea Srosphirum said City Hall had already issued such notices several times, but these guidelines appear to be ignored by authorities as well as by drivers, especially those of construction trucks.
