Phnom Penh Plans to Build ‘Sky train’
Written by DAP NEWS
Wednesday, 28 October 2009

Phnom Penh will boast a state-of-the-art solar powered ‘sky train’ similar to the elevated trams of Bangkok if plans discussed in a meeting on Monday are put into action.

The developer claimed the new sky train could carry over 600,000 people per day, with a possible capacity of over 1 million people by 2043.

The Ministry of Economy and Finance (MEF) held a meeting presided over by MEF Minister Keat Chhon with the GREENCAMECO Company, according to MEF reports.

About 39 km of rail would be built around Phnom Penh, Richard Rory of GREENCAMECO said. An addition 34 km would be covered by buses and solar power would be integral to the project, he added.

The four year project would take until at least 2014, with the first stage from 2011 to 2013. The total budget will be over US$3.6 billion, GREENCAMECO said.

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for the MFE Keat Chhon recommended that “Before starting project, the company should survey extensively first, to protect any impact to the related railways of Cambodia.”

All designs and planning should be clear and support ease of access for all disabled Cambodian people, as well as children,” Keat Chhon added.

Rory said the project would support Cambodian development, including public transport, road safety and less traffic jams.

The company should cooperate with the Ministry of Land Management, Urban Planning and Construction together to better serve the public, Keat Chhon added.

[Purposed] Sky Train, Phnom Penh
Source : Xinhua

HNOM PENH, Aug. 20 (Xinhua) -- A Phnom Penh Municipal official has expressed doubt in the viability of plans announced by the Bangkok Mass Transit System (BTS) to build electric sky train networks over the city's increasingly car-jammed boulevards, while others have welcomed the proposal, local media reported on Monday.

May Vuthy, BTS representative for Cambodia, told Khmer-language magazine the Star, that his company plans to invest 500 million U.S. dollars in building two sky train lines in the capital, with construction expected to begin as early as next year.

A seven-kilometer stretch will link the Japanese-Cambodia Friendship bridge to Monivong bridge, while another eight-kilometer route would connect Psah Thmei (New Market) to Stung Meanchey's Center of Garment, said Ma Vuthy.

Construction is expected to take just four years, said Vuthy, adding that the lines will run from 06:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. and each ride would cost around a U.S. dollar.

Deputy Governor Chreang Sophan told the magazine that the sky train could both reduce traffic congestion and attract tourists.

However, Pa Socheatvong, also a deputy governor, told English-language newspaper the Cambodia Daily that BTS officials met with municipal authorities to discuss the plan last month, but that he felt the plan was too ahead of its time.

"It is still in the imagination," he said.

Chaturont Chaiyakam, first secretary at the Thai Embassy, told the newspaper that Phnom Penh needs the development if it wants to avoid traffic gridlock in the future.

"Phnom Penh needs a mass transit system to cope with its expanding city," he said.

The elevated train service in Bangkok was completed by BTS in 1999 with 23 stations sitting astride two lines with a combined distance of 23-kilometers.

It looks like the developer is taking a wait-and-see approach to see what will happen to Canadia Tower. From what I read in the media, Canadia is asking for $25-$30 per squared meter while the customer is only willing to pay $12-$15 per squared meter. This does not look good for Vattanac. If this trend continues, I doubt that Vattanac will proceed with the building. Remember, the primary reason for any private development is for the money. If a developer knows that he/she will lose money, he/she will not proceed with the project.

Camko to finish condos
Thursday, 25 February 2010 15:00 Soeun Say .

CAMKO City, the satellite development scheduled to house the country’s first stock exchange, will have completed eight 16-storey condominiums, with a further seven following by the end of the year, a representative of the developer World City Co Ltd said Wednesday. Kheng Ser, assistant to World City Vice President Duk-Kon Kim, said the units would represent the end of the first phase of residential development. “Now, we pre-booking for rent and sale,” he said, adding that 80 percent of the properties were sold. World City has invested US$109 million so far in the first phase of Camko.

I think this is the only project in Phnom Penh without halting or slowing down the construction. The project is going fast and smooth

I agree with you Camko is the most serious. But I think its development is a little slower than expected according to the master plan.

Camko buildings must have very low quality because the developer only spent $109,000,000 so far for fifteen 16-story buildings!!! I thought the developer spent at least $500,000,000 already. Sokha Phnom Hotel is a 16-story building and it will cost $100,000,000.

Construction continues at Shopping Mall-Ratana Plaza, a US$8 million development on Russian Boulevard in Phnom Penh. The Overseas Cambodia Investment Corporation, which is owned by Canadia Bank President Pung Kheav Se, will finish the shopping centre in the next six to nine months, OCIC Commercial Housing and Building Project Manager Sok Sambath said Thursday.

The construction site is fence off so I cant really tell whether there are any progress, but their showroom at Monivong road is almost completed.

The Star River is very close to the IFC, a small clusters of skyscrapers (IFC, Star River, Sofitel Resort) will soon be form around the area near the river once all these towers are completed.

At least it is a lot better than the Golden Tower 42 and the De Castle behind it.
