The Koh Pos Bridge in Sihanoukville. It links a small - formerly unpopulated - island to the mainland. The island is only about a kilometer across. It was completed in 2011, only a few developments have been built on the island since. The bridge is even fenced off, so it appears like a private bridge. It is 900 meters long.

During a recent post-rain rush hour, a tuk-tuk driver who identified himself only as “David” sat in his vehicle, reading a newspaper and watching the traffic on Street 51 snarl past. The problem, David said, was that Cambodians flagrantly disobeyed the law.

<snip>

David’s fears are widely shared in the capital, where experts warn that soaring population, vehicle use, condominium construction, minimal enforcement of parking and vehicle tax laws and lackluster public transit options could spell decades of gridlock if action is not taken soon.

"Paradise doesn’t wait for us", warned Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) senior representative Takashi Ito. "The best strategy is to plan long and implement fast".

JICA’s 2035 master plan for urban transport in the capital, which would cost $4.56 billion if implemented, calls for a range of new measures, including four driverless train lines, seven new bus lines and road and traffic management improvements. But many of these proposals remain unfunded and may never be, Mr. Ito conceded. And even with these improvements, Mr. Ito warned that the best the city’s residents, estimated to swell to 2.87 million by 2035 can hope for is that traffic stabilizes before it crests to Jakarta levels, the kind of traffic in which 'you are immobilized in the car for hours'.

<snip>

In January, JICA was blindsided by Prime Minister Hun Sen’s announcement that the government would build a new expressway to the airport, a road that had not been included in the 2035 master plan.



Mr. Ito said the expressway would have thrown off carefully calibrated research that went into the 2035 plan had it not been abruptly canceled last month.

<snip>

As City Hall deliberates, traffic is slowing. JICA research shows that speeds in the urban core of Phnom Penh slowed from 22.9 km/hr to 14.6 km/hr in the period from 2001 to 2012 (the last year for which JICA had available data). The number of vehicles registered grew by a magnitude of 3.5 during that same period.

"We are years behind in planning infrastructure", federation president Peter Brongers said on Thursday. The situation is exacerbated by the 40,000 'grey market' vehicles that are annually imported as scrap to dodge high taxes—ten times the number sold on the legitimate market, according to the federation.

JICA is investing $15 million in synchronized traffic light signals and a traffic control center to help existing traffic flow. The 2035 master plan advocates building more peripheral highways as well as turning existing streets into one-way roads to avoid the SUV face offs endemic to contemporary Phnom Penh.

Continues further, with a suggestion of a few rail upgrades Here

Bridge was funded by Japan, so you'd assume broader Japanese involvement in the engineering and construction.

What is up with those speed bumps?

Interesting to see a Toyota Prius there between all those dirty motorbikes.

Cambodian Minister of Public Works Calls for China’s Support to Phnom Penh-Preah Sihanouk Expressway

AKP Phnom Penh, August 04, 2016 –

Cambodia’s Senior Minister H.E. Sun Chanthol, Minister of Public Works and Transport has sought for more China’s support to infrastructure development in Cambodia.

According to a news release of the Ministry of Public Works and Transport, during a meeting here on Aug. 2 with visiting Chinese Commerce Minister H.E. Gao Hucheng, H.E. Sun Chanthol expressed his appreciation to the Government of the People’s Republic of China for its ongoing support and contributions to the infrastructure development of Cambodia.

H.E. Sun Chanthol requested H.E. Gao Hucheng to help to accelerate the approval of two pending loans for National Road No. 51 and the rehabilitation of Ring Road No. 2, and to facilitate a concession loan to China Road and Bridge Corporation to invest in the expressway between Phnom Penh and Sihanoukville on a Build Operate and Transfer scheme.

At the same time, H.E. Sun Chanthol discussed the need for funding of the rehabilitation of the Northern line from Phnom Penh to Poipet and to upgrade the load axle to 20 tons like the southern line. In addition, he expressed the royal government’s desire to build new railway lines connecting Poipet to Siem Reap and Siem Reap to Phnom Penh.

In reply, H.E. Gao Hucheng agreed that infrastructure development plays a very important role in boosting the economic growth of Cambodia and pledged to set up working teams to follow up these projects. He also expressed his strong support and commitment to assist in moving forward with all the requests and to conduct studies on the existing roads and railways, and the new railway mentioned by H.E. Senior Minister.
