During Project Design
During Project Implementation


The Project will restore access to some of the most heavily populated agriculturally productive areas in the country by improving the high priority lengths of Highways 5, 6 and 7. In particular, the Project will assist the Government in the improvement of road sections between Pursat-Battambang-Sisophan (RN5), Kompang Thom-Rolous (RN6), and Ky Chon-Kratie (RN7) and of provincial roads feeding into these national roads. The scope of the project includes road improvement; bridge construction and maintenance; and consulting services.

Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

The Project roads serve as the prominent trunk roads of the country's road network and require restoration due to their badly deteriorated state. The proposed improvements to provincial roads will ensure reliable all-weather access to the primary road network and enhance agricultural productivity in rural areas.
