Xinhua | 2012-11-26

Cambodia on Monday broke ground for the construction of a $19-million flyover in Phnom Penh's southwestern part to meet the growing number of vehicles.

Prime Minister Hun Sen said it will take 28 months to complete the construction of the 429-meter flyover.

"The sky bridge will not only help ease traffic congestion, but also uplift the beauty of the city," he said at the groundbreaking ceremony.

The premier said that currently the city has more than one million motorcycles and nearly a million cars, buses and trucks.

It will be the third flyover in the kingdom. The first one was inaugurated in June 2010 and the second one opened to traffic in January 2012.
