The objective of the TA is to assist the Government in preparing the Shanxi Expressway Project to remove road transport constraints that impede economic and social development of the Project area, particularly in the povery counties. The TA will (i) refine the Government's feasibility study in line with Bank requirements; (ii) identify the location of road improvements in the hinterlands to extend benefits to poor rural counties in the Project area; (iii) recommend measures to improve road safety in the province; (iv) prepare the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) and the summary EIA in Bank format and carry out a social impact assessment (SIA) of the Project including involuntary resettlement; and (v) provide basis for further policy dialogue in the areas of poverty reduction and corporatization and commercialization of expressway operations in the province.
