Public Transport Outsourcing and Risks

Sustainable Cities Collective: "Every world class city needs a functioning and accessible transportation network, however, Phnom Penhers mainly travel by tuktuk, car (Toyota Camry) or SUV (Lexus).

These large vehicles travel at a very slow pace among all the motorbikes and bicycles weaving between traffic in either direction.

Phnom Penh is flat, and everyone owns a bicycle or rides a cyclo, yet there are no bicycle lanes and very few sidewalks. The city has developed plans to ease the congestion, but little progress has been seen besides a few flyovers and “friendship” bridges.

While the bridges undoubtedly help connect the land between three rivers, the placement and design is quite inefficient -the two main bridges were built directly adjacent to one another."
