The purpose of the technical assistance (TA) is to (i) develop a road development program for efficient and effective road rehabilitation for the next 5–10 years, taking into account operation and maintenance (O&M) financing requirements; and (ii) prepare a high priority road improvement project for ADB’s follow-on investment.
The efficient and effective rehabilitation of the road network will support poverty reduction, economic growth, national integration, and the peace process in the country.
The TA will have two components:
- the master plan component, which will prioritize road sections based on objective criteria and formulate implementation strategies for a financing mechanism for sustainable O&M; and
- the feasibility study component, which will prepare a road project from the engineering, economic, social, and environmental points of view.
