Skytrain or subway construction projects could cost up to $ 1,000 to $ 1.5 billion, but construction has yet to start which is still uncertainly.
Senior Minister Sun Chanthol, Minister of Public Works and Transport, recently said that the JICA study project has already been studied. And the ministry is still waiting for the study results. In particular, the Monorail and subway projects of Chinese companies are studying.
“After graduation, the ministry will compare to select a project that is affordable and responsive to development,” he said. “The project will cost between $ 1 billion and $ 1.4 billion,” he said.
Feasibility studies for the Phnom Penh Skytrain project are ongoing, with one completed and the other two awaiting results. Meanwhile, the government is also looking for sources of funding to implement the project.
At the same time, Mr. Ly Borin, Undersecretary of State at the Ministry of Public Works and Transport in charge of Railways, also said that according to estimates of the air train project. This is very expensive to invest.
“We have already studied the air train, but there are too many projects,” he said. Therefore, it is up to the government to decide.
For infrastructure projects in Phnom Penh, the Ministry of Public Works and Transport has indicated that the ministry is choosing between air trains, mono rail and subways.
