Although many roads in Cambodia were severely damaged during the civil war, most of major roads have been improved under the assistance of international donors. The improvement work of 56km of National Road Number 1 has been almost completed except the last short leg near Phnom Penh. The followings are the remaining sectors of road that are currently under construction or could not been confirmed the current status.

Japanese government and the RGC signed the Grant Agreement in October 2010 for constructing the Neak Loeung Bridge over Mekong River. It is expected to be an indispensable part of the Southern Economic Corridor and Asian Highway No.1. Currently the traffic on National Road No.1 is blocked by Mekong River and has to cross the river by ferry. Once the new bridge is completed in 2016, the travel time between Phnom Penh and Bavet at Vietnam border will be considerably reduced.
