|During Project Design
|During Project Implementation
|The proposed project is designed to achieve three specific objectives: (i) improve road sector efficiency on the main transport corridors in Pakistan, (ii) support regional cooperation by removing or relaxing physical, institutional and other barriers to improve transportation and increase trade; and (iii) institutional capacity building of NHA.|
|The majority of the project corridors form part of the Asian highway network and the trade corridors identified by the Central and South Asian Transport and Trade Forum. Together with ongoing and planned road projects in Afghanistan, the Investment Program supports subregional cooperation through physical and nonphysical improvements of critical sections of N25, N50, and N70, which all form part of the transport corridors for Afghanistan, Iran, and India. In addition to providing improved access to ports in southern Pakistan, the Investment Program will facilitate the economic and social development of the corridor areas through improved access and easier movement of people and goods; these help reduce poverty and support pro-poor economic growth.|
|Improved and sustainable economic growth.|
