Daun Penh district authorities on Monday ordered a group of vendors who have been selling their goods from baskets or small stalls for many years to move from a street at Kandal market to allow traffic to pass through.

On Monday, Daun Penh authorities held a meeting which decided to order vendors to move from Street 148 in Kandal market from Tuesday.

Sok Penhvuth, the Daun Penh district governor, said Street 148 is a public road near Kandal market, but some vendors set up there to sell fish or vegetables and have blocked the whole street for many years.

He said he ordered market authorities to collect the names and number of vendors who sell there and block the road, which he wants to reopen to traffic.

“They come to sell there but block the public road,” he said.

Full story in Wednesday’s paper.
