The Project will be the first intervention under the medium-term program for road sector development in Sri Lanka. The first objective is to improve transport efficiency by (i) strengthening national and provincial roads institutions to perform their core role of strategic management and planning of the road network; (ii) developing strong, competitive domestic capacity for road construction and engineering services; (iii) planning, executing, and financing road maintenance on a sustainable basis; and (iv) upgrading and increasing capacity of priority roads. The second objective is to increase private sector participation in the road sector by (i) increased outsourcing of RDA construction and maintenance work and engineering services, and (ii) increasing opportunities for private operation of bus services. The Project will also improve the governance of the road sector by increasing transparency.
