The outcome is improved accessibility and connectivity through improved road sector policies and institutions and an upgraded and maintained National Highway network that lowers transport cost and travel time.

Estimated cost

216.0 Mn US$

Source of Funds

ADB, OFID  and GOSL

Period of Completion

From year 2007 up to 31.03.2012

Foreign Contribution if any with details

ADB :150.0 Mn US$ & OFID: 8 Mn US$

Period of Completion

From year 2007 up to 31.03.2012

Present status

Work is in progress and the detail progress report is annexed

Benefits

The Project covers widening and improvement of approximately 190 km of the road network comprising four road sections traversing mainly through rural districts in four provinces. Limited access of the rural and urban poor to socio economic services is one of the major causes of poverty in the project area. The rural population of North Central and Uva provinces largely depending on subsistence agriculture. Better roads will improve the economic productivity of people in public and private enterprises including teachers, medical staff and the other government employees. Better roads will facilitate faster and convenient travel by women, especially pregnant mothers, children and the elderly to access quality health services. A number of schools are without local schools hence children attending schools in nearby villages or in the closest town center rely mostly on public bus for transport. The project will increase the regularity of the bus trips to the villages and help children reach school in time.

Any other details

The loan of $150.0 million from ADB’s ordinary capital resources will have a 25-year term, including a grace period of 5 years; an interest rate determined in accordance with ADB’s London interbank offered rate (LIBOR)-based lending facility; a commitment charge of 0.75% per annum; and such other terms and conditions as set forth in the loan and project agreements. The commitment charge and the interest during construction will be capitalized in the loan.
