The Cambodian Railway Tracker

cambodia railway
A functional national railway can create jobs, better transport options, enhanced competitiveness for products made in Cambodia, and cheaper transport for goods and commodities.

The Government of Australia and ADB are working with the Royal Government of Cambodia and other donor partners to rehabilitate the national railway in Cambodia. The existing railway has fallen into a state of significant disrepair following years of neglect and vandalism dating back to the Khmer Rouge era.

The new railway will position Cambodia as a true subregional transport hub, creating new jobs and business opportunities in the manufacturing and logistic services sectors. The efficiency and cost-effectiveness of Cambodia's transport system will also be enhanced by enabling the efficient and safe transport of heavy, bulky, and hazardous cargo.

Through these benefits the project will increase the competitiveness of the Cambodian economy.
