Angkor Wat Floating Bridge Officially Open

A temporary floating bridge constructed from plastic bags was recently opened to allow restoration of the original stone moat crossing. The bridge made from recycled plastic bags was built for the safety of tourists visiting Angkor Wat Temple, while the original causeway will be closed completely for experts from APSARA Authority and Sophia University to begin restoration work. Mr. Heng Kim Leng, Director of the Department of Technical Support and Inter-sectoral Project, said the temporary floating bridge is suitable for use of up to 20 years. The recycled causeway has six locations along it where visitors can stand and relax or take pictures. The bridge was studied by APSARA and built by KTS Company.
