Cambodia approves construction of a canal linking capital to coastal province
The Cambodian government has approved the construction of the first-ever waterway connecting the Bassac River in Phnom Penh with the sea in the southwest Kep province.
The 180-kilometer Bassac River Navigation and Logistics System will link between the Bassac River in the capital and the sea in Kep province, passing through Kandal, Takeo, and Kampot.
The new waterway project is estimated to cost about 1.7 billion U.S. dollars and it will take about four years for the project to be constructed. According to the official, a total population of 1.6 million currently live on both sides of the waterway.
