This project was initially proposed as a railway connection between Cambodia and Vietnam. Feasibility studies were conducted to see if the project was economically viable, with reports estimating a total cost of $686 million according to news sources.
In February 2018, government officials said that the Bat Deng-Luc Ning railway project was determined to be too costly and was to be replaced by a railway project between Ho Chi Minh City and Bavet, according to reporting by Khmer Times and VN Express.
