  • Angkor Protected Landscape surrounds the World Heritage site of Angkor Wat temple. The edges of the reserve area are over 100 kilometers from the project road zero point.
  • Tonle Sap Freshwater Lake Biosphere lies to the south of NR 6. The outer zone of the biosphere reserve, where development is permitted, is defined by the road alignment of NR 6.
  • The Sarun Crane bird sanctuary lies to the north of NR 6 at a distance of approximately 25 kms.

Vehicle related air and nose pollution is not a major environmental issue along the corridor. However, during dry seasons, lateritic dust from passing vehicles affects the quality of life for resident in vicinity of the earth roads. During road construction, the contractors will be requested to sprinkle with water on the base and sub base courses and existing road to minimize the dust impact on air pollution. Wastewater and solid waste generated by operation of Base Camp and Crusher plant have been identified as potential environmental issues which need to be addressed through the environmental management plan (EMP) and the environmental monitoring plan to be implemented through the Civil Works
