During the Project implementation, the construction-related impacts like dust, noise, runoff... are unavoidalbe. Land acquisition and involutary resettlement are substantial primarily social impacts; and regulating and easing the movement of people, goods, and vehicles across the Vietnam-Cambodia border are issues. The Project's potential for adversely impacting on the health of local populations is relatively limited as the component's civil works contractors are based in Ho Chi Minh City and large provincial towns, their workforces are largely local and also constitute only a very small portion of the area's population.
- The Project Road follows the alignment of the existing road for most of its length, with minor realignments to improve safety and reduce social impacts. - An Inititial Environmental Examnation (IEE) was conducted as part of Project preparation. Project's civil works contracts documents include a range of environrmental impact mitigation measures implemented by the civil work contractors and monitored and enforced by the supervision consultants. -PMU-MT had a detailed measurement of survey on land acquisition and involuntary resettlement, based on the principles agreed with ADB during loan processing and subsequently approved by the Government. The compensation and resettlement to people affected by the Project Road were undertaken in accordance with Government procedures and ADB's Policy on Involutary Resettlement. -ADB places on the careful an effective implementation of the resettlement action plan. Loan Agreement contains covenants related to this issue. PMU-MT has engaged a domestic agency to monitor the implementation of the resettlement plan. ADB also monitored the resettlement process through regular review missions. -Contractors were requied to coordinate with the Government's health authorities to implement an appropriete information campain for their workforces.

|During Project Implementation
|The objective of the Project is to encourage traffic and trade flows between Cambodia and Vietnam by improving the Project Road, by improving facilities at the border crossing, and by facilitating Government efforts to reduce bureaucratic and procedural constraints to cross-border trade. The Project improves about 80 km of the Project Road to the standard required by the traffic projected to use it for domestic and international purposes over the ten-year period from 2002 to 2012. The length includes 22km of Highway 1 between Thu Duc and An Suong, which also serves as an outer ring-road to the north of Ho Chi Minh City, and 58km of Highway 22, between An Suong and the border with Cambodia at Moc Bai. Reconstruction includes the grade-separated An Suong intersection between Highways 1 and 22, a second Binh Phuoc bridge (500m long), and replacement or repair of several smaller bridges. Carriageway widths will vary from two to six lanes, and surfaced shoulders with widths of 2m to 6m will be provided for the very substantial volumes of two-wheel and nonmotirized traffic that used the road. Within the suburban area of Ho Chi Minh City, the Project Road is constructed as a divided carriageway for capacity and safety reasons. The works also includes construction of customs, immigration, and other infrastructure and buildings on the Vietnamese side of the border crossing. The Projet also includes consulting services for construction supervision, including review of contractor designs for bridges, and training of domestic Government and consultant staff. The Project|
|The Project, developed within the framework of the Bank's Greater Mekong Subregion initiative, will assist the Governments in responding to changed circumstances, such as economic reforms in Viet Nam taking firm hold, and the restoration of Cambodia to a relatively peaceful condition. The potential for cross-border trade is again evident.|
