The feasibility of a sky train project in the capital of Cambodia is well under way. It may be completed before the end of the year and the sky train line will then be built in the course of the next two years.

The project in major part is funded by Japanese investors. It will help solve the problem with traffic conjection in Phnom Penh and goes in line with the country's initiative called 'Sustainable Urban Mobility for All' aimed at switching onto a more sustainable, safer and ecologically friendlier transportation system trhoughout the cpuntry. 

The first 18 km airport line will connect the Phnom Penh international airport, the largest airport in the country, with the Central Market, or Psar Thmey. It is estimated that the construction will cost between 800 mln and 1 billion US dollar.

If the maiden sky train line proves to be a success, then more routes will be added to the network. A Chinese company has already expressed their interest to join the second phase of the project.
Currently Phnom Penh public transport system exists in a form of three air-conditioned bus lines operated by Phnom Penh municipal government and complemented by private transportation including cycle rickshaws, autorickshaws, motorcycle taxis and usual automobile taxis.
