A Japanese-funded bridge dating back more than half a century in Phnom Penh is set for renovation in 2017, with an estimated budget of ¥3.2 billion ($30 million) in grants from Tokyo, officials said Tuesday.

Sun Chanthol, Cambodia’s minister of public works and transportation, said the Japan International Cooperation Agency’s experts in 2014 found that some parts of the Cambodia-Japan Friendship Bridge had been damaged and are in need of repair. They agreed that the renovation project will start in early 2017.
