NR 4 Becomes a Priority

I would like to express my pleasure to be able to return once again after I came here for the groundbreaking ceremony on 18 May 2011. Please allow me to say a few things as I happened to have come along this area many times. It was started with the construction of the 4.2 meters bridge 117. It was followed by the construction into concrete later. That means I was around here quite a while. In addition to that, my late mother also contributed to the reconstruction of the Kdei Lovea Buddhist pagoda, which is not far from here. Many of my relatives, my late grandaunt included, were buried there. My late mother also has one other pagoda called Tropang Korng in Kompong Speu’s district of Samraong Tong too.
