The construction of the Cambodia-Thailand Stung Bot-Ban Nong Ian international border crossing is now over 90 percent complete.
The update was shared with the Minister of Public Works and Transport, H.E. Peng Ponea, during his inspection visit to the site this week.
The construction of the Stung Bot international border, located in Poipet city, Banteay Meanchey province, started on April 22, 2019 and is expected to cost about US$26.42 million.
Along with the border crossing construction, a Cambodia-Thailand friendship bridge connecting Stung Bot and Ban Nong Ian was also built.
The bridge, which cost about US$19 million, is 620 metres long – 215 metres on the Cambodian side and 405 metres on the Thai side.
The Stung Bot-Ban Nong Ian international border gate is expected to contribute essentially to Cambodia-Thailand trade and cooperation as well as the ASEAN connectivity vision.
