The Royal Government of Cambodia has set out a plan to expand National Road No. 6 from the intersection of the Siem Reap Angkor International Airport entrance to Siem Reap City, with a length of approximately 20 kilometers, from 4 lanes to 6 lanes.
It was confirmed by Samdech Thipadei Hun Manet, Prime Minister of Cambodia, at the inauguration ceremony of the new airport on November 16, 2023.
Speaking at the ceremony, the prime minister thanked the investment companies that not only invested in the construction of the airport but also in the construction of the highway from the airport to National Road 6. And for the next task, the Royal Government will extend National Road 6 from this intersection to Siem Reap, which is likely to start in 2024.
"We have two plans: first, we will expand National Road No. 6 from the highway intersection from the airport to the provincial capital for nearly 20 kilometers. We have already planned a budget of US$60 million, and we are still negotiating next year because we need to address the impact and prepare to expand from 4 lanes to 6 lanes. Secondly, we are negotiating with an investment company to build a Monorail light train from this airport to the city, "said Samdach Thipadei Hun Manet.
The prime minister added that the development of transport infrastructure is to facilitate the travel of tourists from the airport to the tourism sites in Siem Reap province. The new airport is about 40 kilometers from the provincial capital and about 50 kilometers from the Angkor Wat temple site.
