Description The impact of the Project is to develop an integrated road transport system that supports sustainable economic growth in Yunnan Province, part of the GMS. The outcome of the Project is improved road transport efficiency and safety in the project area. The Project will (i) reduce vehicle operating costs and travel time; (ii) improve access in the western part of Yunnan Province, part of the GMS; (iii) provide additional transport capacity to accommodate growing traffic; and (iv) provide improved access to jobs, markets, and social services in a poor area.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The road network in Yunnan is relatively dense but only provides low levels of service to the population. This situation limits the contribution of roads to income earning, employment creation, and poverty reduction. To overcome this problem, the existing road infrastructure must be improved and upgraded. The proposed project will be the last in a series of five Asian Development Bank (ADB) interventions to develop the National Expressway Network Plan (NENP) in Yunnan. It will also finance the rehabilitation of national and provincial highways, and introduce new ways of maintaining rural roads. The project was included in the country partnership strategy, 2008 2010 and the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) regional cooperation operations business plan, 2010 2012. It is designed to address both investment needs and sector performance issues, including road asset management.
Impact Sustainable economic and social development in Yunnan Province
Project Outcome
Description of Outcome An efficient, safe, sustainable, and environment-friendly transport system developed in the project area
Progress Toward Outcome Project implementation is ongoing. All ADB and government-financed works, goods, and service contracts for the LongRui road have been procured. Two overseas trainings to the US and Canada had been fielded, and two study reports submitted.
Implementation Progress
Description of Project Outputs

1. Constructed new Longling-Ruili Corridor

2. Improved local road network conditions in Yunnan

3. Improved rural road conditions in Dehong Prefecture

4. Enhanced performance by selected road agencies and road maintenance groups

Status of Implementation Progress (Outputs, Activities, and Issues)

All contracts awarded and construction ongoing.

Of the targetted 591.12 km roads, 337.57 km have been rehabilitated.

Road safety measures have been built into road upgrading.

69 maintenance groups with 259 members have been formed. Most group members are women.

All five county communication bureaus are engaging communities or households to provide routine road maintenance.

Indigenous Peoples A
Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects
Environmental Aspects The project is classified environmental category A. A consolidated environmental impact assessment (EIA) was prepared in compliance with the PRC regulatory framework and ADB's Safeguard Policy Statement (2009). The EIA summarized the findings of a domestic EIA for the Longling-Ruili Expressway (LRE), an environmental assessment and review framework for other outputs, and a due diligence assessment of the environmental impact of the project. To ensure that all the potential adverse environmental impacts of the project are mitigated, Yunnan Provincial Department of Transport will implement the environmental management plan (EMP) as specified in the EIA. The EMP will be incorporated in the bidding documents and contracts for civil works; they will be monitored and semiannual reports submitted to ADB.
Involuntary Resettlement The project is classified category A for resettlement. Resettlement information booklets have been distributed to affected villages. The project will affect 35 administrative villages of 12 townships in Longling country of Baoshan city, Luxi city and Ruili city of Dehong prefecture. About 27,500 persons will be affected and the estimated resettlement cost is CNY552 million to be financed by counterpart financing.
Indigenous Peoples The project is classified category A for indigenous people. Abount 1 million people are expected to benefit directly in the LRE influence area, of which 38% are ethnic minorities. The village and household surveys indicated that ethnic minority communities support the project. Some of these ethnic minorities could face negative impacts or social risks, inclulding through land acquisition and resettlement, communicable diseases, and changes to traditional culture and value system. To address these risks, a number of mitigation and enhancement measures have been designed and targeted at the most vulnerable groups.
Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design Consultation have been held with the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC), Ministry of Finance (MOF), Ministry of Transport (MOT) and respective agencies of the provincial government in designing the proposed project.
During Project Implementation Stakeholder participation and consultation will continue to increase understanding and encourage active involvement of local communities.
Business Opportunities
Consulting Services The Project will finance 42 person-months (pm) of international consulting services and 80 pm of capacity building through international training. An international consulting firm will be selected and contracted according to the ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2010, as amended from time to time), using the quality and cost based selection method at the quality-to-cost ratio of 80:20.
Procurement All procurement of goods and works will be undertaken in accordance with ADB's Procurement Guidelines. The civil works for LRE and class II highway will be divided into 22 packages and procured through international competitive bidding (ICB). Out of 22 packages, ADB will finance seven packages. The pavement work of the expressway and the class II highway is packaged into five ICB contracts, all of which will be financed by ADB. ADB will also finance maintenance equipment for the expressway. The civil works for output 2 will be divided into 21 packages. Seven ADB-financed contract packages will be procured through national competitive bidding (NCB). Other contract packages will be procured through the government procurement procedure. A well-qualified tendering company will be recruited by YPDOT to handle competitive bidding.
