The railroad from Phnom Penh to Sihanoukville in the south coast of Cambodia was constructed with the assistance of the governments of France, West Germany and the PR of China. The construction lasted for a decade and the new line inaugurated in 1969. The new railroad cut down the reliance on Saigon port of Vietnam and Khlong Toei port of Thailand.
