The studies about mega transport system – sky train, monorail, and subway – in Phnom Penh are being finalized and the investment will likely be under the public-private partnership, according to Ministry of Public Works and Transport.

Sun Chanthol, Minister of Public Works and Transport released that the results of the studies will be submitted to the government for consideration and approval.

The ministry has given the green light to foreign firms from China and Japanese International Cooperation Agency to conduct feasibility studies on the mega transport system in the capital.

The government has previously prioritized the subway train development in Phnom Penh as the mega transportation system.

The subway train is among other alternatives – metro or sky train, he said, citing that studies on sky train in the city have been made by JICA, showing an estimated cost of USD 1,800 million.

This is to aim for solving the traffic congestion in Phnom Penh. Chanthol said that the huge investment under the private-public partnership would be achievable and sustainable.

“If we can find investors, we will build,” he said.

Prime Minister Hun Sen last week unveiled a public investment project on high-speed rails linking the capital to potential provinces and to the countries’ neighboring countries.
