Description PHI: NORTH LUZON EXPRESSWAY REHABILITATION AND EXPANSION (formerly Manila North Tollways Corporation)
Objectives and Scope
Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy ADB's operational strategy for the Philippines emphasizes sustainable economic growth and recognizes the importance of developing an extensive, efficient, and well-integrated transport network. ADB's assistance to the transport sector focuses mainly on national and provincial roads, airports, and ports. Within the road subsector, support for improvement of the existing road network is considered high priority. The poor quality of the road network is a major constraint to foreign and domestic investment and limits economic and social development, particularly in agricultural and rural areas. Poor accessibility and unreliable national roads contribute significantly to low growth in the countryside. This emphasis on improved road infrastructure should be accompanied by appropriate preventive and routine maintenance programs. ADB supports the Government's efforts to increase private sector participation in the sector through privatization, public-private partnerships, and build-operate-transfer (BOT) schemes.
