OBJECTIVE

The objective is to improve rural accessibility through resilient infrastructure and enhance capacity of MPRRDA to manage MP’s rural road network.

DESCRIPTION

The project consists of four components.

(i) Road Upgrading, Construction and Maintenance: The component has two sub-components: (a) surface sealing of the existing gravel surfaced rural roads (approx. 10,000 km) developed under the CMGSY program; and (b) providing alternate connectivity (approx. 510 km) to villages that have higher potential to grow faster, given additional linkages to more economic and market centers.

(ii) Institutional Development: The component has two sub-components: (a) defining the rural road asset management system requirements and terms of reference (overall system architecture, data collection and analytical modules) and then procuring a road asset management system or such elements required to upgrade the existing system; and (b) strengthening design and research and quality assurance capacity of MPRRDA.

(iii) Road Safety Management Capacity Development: The component has two sub-components: (a) developing a comprehensive and multi-institutional, multi-sectoral road accident data management system; and (b) piloting multi-sectoral road safety initiatives for a high-risk next work.

(iv) Design, Implementation and Management Support: The component supports MPRRDA in overall project management, construction supervision and quality control, and technical and financing audits with the support from independent consultants.
