Korea to kick off a complete ring road in Siem Reap

Siem Reap: Korea International Cooperation Agency, known as KOICA in short, in cooperation with APSARA Authority will organize the ground breaking ceremony for Korean Ring Road project in the morning of Friday, March 17, 2011 in Kouk Tachan village, Sangkat Kouk Chork of Siem Reap city.

The ceremony will be highly presided over by H.E. Sok An, Deputy Prime Minister, Minister in Charge of the Office of the Council of Ministers, and President of APSARA Authority, and H.E. Chang Ho-Jin, Ambassador of the Republic of Korea to Cambodia.

The event represents the kickoff of the construction of Korean Ring Road which was planned to be completed by 2012 with the total budget of 11.5 million USD. This project was requested by Royal Government of Cambodia to the Government of the Republic of Korea through KOICA Cambodia Office to complete the whole Korean Ring Road of 36.5 km by constructing new asphalt-paved road of 21.5km connecting the current 15 km west and east bypass roads supported by KOICA from 2008 to 2009.

When the construction finishes, the Korean Ring Road will play very important role in bypassing all heavy load trucks out of Angkor historical sites and Siem Reap town by providing alternative route off National Road #6 at Svay Thom Market in Kandaek commune, touring around Angkor area and back to national road #6 at Kruos primary school in Sangkat Svay Dangkum. With this bypass road, traffic and environmental pollution problem at Angkor area and Siem Reap town will be eased.

Be noted that KOICA has been supporting Cambodian government since 2005 by providing 3 road infrastructure development projects to complete the 36.5km ring road in Siem Reap province with the total budget of 17.4 million USD.
