The governor held a meeting of City Hall officials to go over plans for overpasses at the two junctions that frequently face traffic jams. Sreng asked officials to find a way to ensure that the project can be green lighted at the earliest.
“[I] urge the meeting to have an articulate solutions for the areas so that the construction can start soon and it could relieve [traffic] congestion at Kbal Thnal and Choam Chao roundabouts in the near future,” he said, according to a post on Facebook.
A plan for the overpass at Choam Chao, a site with frequent traffic congestion, shows an elaborate crisscrossing of streets connecting National Roads 3 and 4 to Russian and Veng Sreng Boulevards.
The capital has seen an increase in public infrastructure projects, mostly focused on transportation. An expanding fleet of buses, a new water taxi and an airport rail link have all sought to ease growing congestion in recent months.
