Series: Validations of Project Completion Reports
Project Number: 33459-013


Consistent with its 1995 infrastructure master plan, the Xi’an Municipal Government programmed large investments for a road network, a subway system, and public transport. The master plan gave priority to the construction of the third ring road, which would form the main physical component of the Xi’an Urban Transport Project. Construction of the ring road and connector roads would provide efficient and safe access within the city and for inbound and outbound traffic. The project would address the growing traffic congestion caused by rapid increase in traffic, inadequate road infrastructure, and poor traffic management. The project was designed as a public service project because people in the urban area would all benefit from the project directly or indirectly through reduced congestion in the urban road network as a whole.

This report validates the completion report’s assessment of the project which aims to develop an efficient, safe and environmentally sustainable urban transport system in Xi’an Municipal Government in the People’s Republic of China. IED overall assessment: Successful
