Siem Reap city center:

The ICC-Angkor welcomes the project to establish a pedestrian space within the area of the large park located in front of the Royal Residence.

An initial advantage of the project is that is rules out the recently contemplated plan of having a main highway go through this zone as an extension of the existing Highway No. 6 allowance. Most importantly, it will provide in Zone 3 of Angkor Park (Siem Reap) a focus in Siem Reap, not far from the historical Old Market neighbourhood.

The ICC recommends:

– that this project be taken on board officially; and

– that, in cooperation with the Department of Works of the City of Siem Reap, the APSARA National Authority complete the necessary upstream studies and prepare a file to be submitted to seek funding.
