Building Cambodia's Roads

January 18, 2010 By: Meagan Drillinger

The New York Times reported on Monday that since the end of the tumultuous civil war in Cambodia, the government has been working to rebuild and enhance the country's inadequate road system. This move will not only improve the quality of life for Cambodians, but will help to boost its tourism industry.

The rise in road construction began last month with the inauguration of Routes 5 and 6, which connect the capital, Phnom Penh and the Thai border.

"Now enjoying the dividends of peace, Cambodia is halfway through a road-building spree with 10 projects totally 1,173 kilometers, or 730 miles, of pavement still under way, said Prime Minister Hun Sen..." the Times reported.

The system of roads will help bring together popular destinations, such as Angkor Wat, and other historic sites, which were once more difficult to get to. Travel throughout the country will be much easier, as well.
