Traffic on Banteay Meanchey's Road 268A resumes after flooding

The Banteay Meanchey provincial Department of Public Works and Transport has allowed traffic to resume without further restrictions on provincial road 268A after rainy season floodwaters receded from the submerged road in recent days.

The department said in a notice on October 4 that trucks that pass through the area on road 268A from the location called Prey Moan to Ang Trapaing Thmor Lake in Phnom Srok district may do so but drivers need to be very careful and trucks are advised to take a cautious approach in terms of the weight of the cargo they are going to carry on the road.

The department said it hoped that all individual drivers and large freight forwarding companies will heed the warning and conduct themselves responsibly on the road by respecting the legal limits for weight whether the road is dry or wet in order to help contribute to the long-term durability of the road and prevent frequent closures for infrastructure maintenance.

On September 26, the provincial department temporarily suspended traffic due to the effects of storms and rains which led to flash flooding and water rapidly flowing across the road and submerging it. This resulted in the ban of heavy freight or cargo trucks on that road until today’s improved conditions.
