Railways

Cambodia's modern railway system commenced commercial rail operations on the 256- kilometre "Southern Line" between the capital city of Phnom Penh and Sihanoukville Port after years of renovation with the support from the development partners.

The commercial train service to the Port of Sihanoukville marks a significant development towards the completion of the long-awaited Pan-Asian railroad.

The new railway will bring a range of benefits to Cambodia. It will lower the cost of staple commodities that Cambodian families depend on. Also, it will improve road safety by taking dangerous cargoes, such as the fuel trucks driving between the oil terminal in Sihanoukville and Phnom Penh, off the roads. In addition it will position Cambodia as a true sub-regional transportation hub, reducing the time and costs of transporting a range of products.

According to ADB, another 337 kilometer "Northern Line", linking Phnom Penh to Poipet and Thailand, is expected to be opened in phases between 2014 and 2015.

The total project cost of the Greater Mekong Sub-region Rehabilitation of the Railway project in Cambodia, amounting to 141.6 million U.S. dollars, is financed by an ADB loan of 84 million U.S. dollars, a Cambodian government contribution of 20.3 million U.S. dollars, an Australian grant of 21.5 million U.S. dollars, an OPEC Fund for International Development loan of 13 million U.S. dollars and a Malaysian grant of 2.8 million U.S. dollars.
