Description The Project will help promote sustainable economic growth and poverty reduction in Hunan province and the project area. It will achieve this by (i) enhancing road transport efficiency and safety; (ii) providing a link in the Changsha-Chongqing corridor, one of eight high-priority western corridors; and (iii) improving rural minority villages' access to income-generating opportunities and social services. The Project involves (i) constructing a 64 km, access-controlled toll expressway from Jishou to Chadong, (ii) upgrading 129 km of local roads to improve access to 52 poor villages in the rural minority area, (iii) promoting private sector participation through an operation and maintenance concession, and (iv) strengthening the Hunan provincial government's capacity of construction, road safety, project monitoring and evaluation, and asset management and maintenance by means of consulting services and training.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The Asian Development Bank's (ADB) operational strategy in the PRC's road sector supports (i) the construction of roads that connect major growth centers with hinterland economies; (ii) the integration of the network so that the NTHS is supported by a system of local roads, particularly those that provide access to poor areas; (iii) the delivery of adequate and affordable transport services; (iv) the promotion of road safety and the reduction of vehicle emissions; (v) the strengthening of institutions to increase financial and managerial efficiency in expressway operation; (vi) the adoption of appropriate pricing policies to optimize road transport capacity; and (vii) the use of alternative methods of investment financing, including private sector participation. In line with the Government?fs strategy, ADB road sector assistance has also targeted the poor, less developed central and western provinces. The proposed Project is consistent with the PRC's development priorities and ADB's strategy.

Procurement All ADB-financed procurements will follow ADB's Guidelines for Procurement. The main civil works packages, pavement packages, and equipment packages are to be procured under international competitive bidding (ICB) procedures. Ancillary facilities, including the administration building and service areas building under domestic financing, and equipment for traffic engineering will be procured using local competitive bidding (LCB). The procurement for the local road section financed by the ADB loan will use LCB, while the procurement for the local roads under government financing will follow government procedures acceptable to ADB. The international bidding will be conducted by a qualified tendering company with previous experience in externally funded projects. Only prequalified contractors with adequate technical and financial capacities will be allowed to bid for several packages; they may be awarded more than one contract based on the least-cost combination of contracts.
