It attracted me to drop a few words about Neak Loeung Bridge during my trip back from Svay Reing last week as I thought that I will have not many chance to cross the Mekong River with these ferries.
According to the press that Japanese government had signed an agreement to provide a $131 million grant to Cambodia to build what will be the longest bridge across the Mekong River and a major link in a regional transport network. The construction of the bridge over the Mekong, at the town of Neak Leoung, southeast of the Cambodian capital, Phnom Penh, is expected to begin soon and should be completed by 2015.
Hopefully the construction plan will goes as schedule. I congratulate to this support from the Japanese government to Cambodia.
