Rapid Progress

PP’s third overpass is always a buzz of excitement (and traffic delays).

Pillars going up

Lots is happening at the SMC overpass construction site. Traffic is now being routed under the bridge when approaching from the north. Things seem to be progressing fast.

Crane’s up

Full swing into action at Stung Meanchey intersection. Huge cranes are up and things are progressing quickly.

Approaching the intersection from the south (St. 271 dyke road)

Crane’s up!

The flyover will flyover this trashy area (buildings used to be here)

Recently they took out access road between 271 and Stung Meanchey area

North entrance to the construction area

Must be nice working next to that ‘river’

Clear the buildings!

The Stung Meanchey Bridge is well under way, starting with a surprising amount of cleared buildings in just a couple weeks. One day, everything was normal, and the next, you could see across a couple blocks where buildings used to be!

The project is not as intrusive as it appears at first glance toward the project billboard. Some of the project exists already, like the connector towards #4. Most of the new flyovers go across #1 to #2 to #3 to #5. There will be a new onramp loop across the river at #7 and across #8. Buildings at #2, #3, #4, #5 and #6 are all in the process of getting knocked down.
