Project Description

The Project will restore the Cambodia's railway infrastructure by rehabilitating its existing track. The railway's operations will be improved through organizational restructuring with award to a private railway operator of a concession to operate the railway commercially under a PPP arrangement. Restructuring is implemented through an ADTA that advises the Government on the future structure of the railway subsector and provides transaction advisory for selection of the PPP Railway Operator. The PPP Railway Operator selected after competitive international bidding for the concession. The rehabilitation investment and the associated restructuring will together set the stage for efficient rail services, which in turn realizes the Project's objectives: improving the transport sector's efficiency by increasing the diversity of transport modes and routes, and resurrecting the railway on a sustainable basis.
