Officials Fear Collapse of Riverside Buildings

Ministry of Land Management officials have said that colonial-era buildings along Phnom Penh’s riverside could collapse as a result of damage received from construction next door. The buildings along the Sisowath Quay could be in an even more perilous position as a result of the heavy rains Phnom Penh has been experiencing. Vattanac Properties Ltd has ceased work on the neighboring site after the police confiscated their machinery.
