The effort of Phnom Penh Municipality to deal with traffic congestion has brought about a new and first-ever sky bridge in the city that will be officially opened in late June 2010, official news agency AKP reported on Tuesday.

Located in the southeastern part of Phnom Penh City, adjacent to Monivong bridge, the approximately 300-meter-long sky bridge cost around 6 million U.S. dollars, it said.

As planned, the municipality will construct two other sky bridges in the areas, statistically showed to be the most jammed by traffic, including Stung Meanchey area and locally known as Two- Lion area.

Expanding key bridges and roads and enhancing traffic law enforcement are also measures to improve the traffic in the capital city of Cambodia, AKP said.
