CAREC Corridors 2, 3, and 5 (Obigarm-Nurobod) Road Project


The Obigarm–Nurobod road section of the existing M41 highway, which carries about 3,000 vehicles per day, will be inundated once the HPP reservoir has filled to operating levels.  A bypass road must be completed and opened to traffic by latest November 2023, the date by which the rising water in the HPP reservoir will have inundated several critical sections of the M41 highway.

Expected Outcome

Connectivity and safety along the Obigarm–Nurobod road improved

Expected Outputs

  • Project roads constructed, and road safety awareness increased
  • Ministry of Transport institutional capacity on asset management strengthened
  • Women's access to economic opportunities enhanced
