Container turned over on ‘highway’

Another NR3 history and at the same point

PREY NUB, 31 August 2012. Container turned over on NR3 in a problematic spot on Prey Nub. Photo by Bass Saylowna (Tula)

Prey Nub. It is the same spot at National Road 3. Few days after we reported the big canyon, there were some works of reparation. Now, exactly at the same point and while I write this post, we have a big container turned over on the road. The accident was reported last Friday (08.31.2012). A truck with a container could not keep instability by passing the place and turned over on the road. Traffic by the point needs to wait about one hour, while the police controls the passing over one ‘lane’, a muddy path. Let’s see for how many days the container will stay in the place and for how many years more we are going to suffer the bad construction of NR3 (Prey Nub – Kampot.)

    …Here are terribly bad and life dangerous roads – There are poorest student having even no money to attend inscription at Don Bosco. Foreigners always being asked for help, and they do. But where are the rich Cambodians, the Government to fulfill their duty towards e.g. their poorest and weakest country men being keen in good education?
    No, they need the money for such life important things as ‘Techo & Techo &’ statues to praise warriors, or for all the walkie-talkies in this county, or giant flower bouquets to show-up at ASEN summit, or or or…
    And the money is there!
