During the groundbreaking ceremony of Boeung Kak construction on July 11th, 2011, H.E Kep Chuk Tema, a former Phnom Penh governor, explained the government’s theory for the development of Phnom Penh. The city is a basin and lower than sea level, which is why it is surrounded by many lakes. The Capital can only be expanded and developed by “reclaiming” some of these lakes such as Boeung Techo (where Central Market stands today), Boeung Raing, Boeung Keng Kang, Ou Russey, and well as other lakes. Therefore, the filling of lakes around the city is necessary and cannot be avoided. As a result,…Read More
As Phnom Penh City continues to develop, many projects have been implemented such as the drainage system improvements, the waste management improvements, and the public transportation plan. Similarly, the government has also focused on road development in the city as some roads that were already constructed are damaged and others need to be expanded. According to City Hall’s 2011 data, the total length of the roads in the capital was 1,379,487 meters consisting of three different types: 215,286 meters of AC road, 279,753 meters of DBST roads, and 206,730 meters of concrete road.
CINTRI Company employees are on strike and demanding better salaries. As a result, all trash collection in Phnom Penh has been put on hold until today, December 17, 2014. Many areas are now overflowing with trash, which has had an impact on resident’s health and the environment throughout the city.
Please report any trash build up in your area to Urban Voice Cambodia using www.urbanvoicecambodia.net, or phone: 097 26 40 056.

Over the last few years, Phnom Penh has been developing rapidly with modern super markets, skyscrapers, and sky bridges. Along with these developments, there have also been many problems such as traffic jams, blackouts, road deterioration, displaced trash, and especially flooding, which negatively affect Phnom Penh residents.
Due to a lack of rainwater storage from lakes such as Boeung Kok, Boeung Samyab, Boeung Tumpun (which were completely filled for land development ventures), and inadequate restoration of drainage systems, Phnom Penh always floods when it rains. Flooding causes…
