Derailed: A study on the resettlement process and impacts of the rehabilitation of the Cambodian railway

The Railway Project aims to enable efficient and cost-effective transport of heavy, bulky and hazardous cargo. According to ADB, this is expected to lower the costs of main commodities and manufacturing inputs. Other anticipated benefits are a more competitive transport sector, better road safety and lower costs for road construction and repair as heavy traffic will be partly diverted from Cambodia’s highways. The Project intends to establish Cambodia as a sub-regional transport hub in order to increase the competitiveness of the country’s economy and contribute to regional economic integration. In the longer term, passenger trains are expected to become operational, offering an alternative affordable transport option.
