Philippines: Improving National Roads for Inclusive Growth in Mindanao Project

Sovereign Project | 41076-045

Summary

The impact of the project will be improved accessibility of transport infrastructure. The outcome of the project will be improved quality of the national road network in Mindanao. The outputs will be (i) improvement of about 400 km of 10 national roads; (ii) detailed engineering design for roads to be improved under future projects; and (iii) strengthened institutional capacity of DPWH. The road improvement works will include paving earth roads, replacing road sections washed out by floods, widening existing roads, adding surface overlays, and replacement and strengthening of bridges. The works will incorporate international best practice for road safety, climate change adaptation, and seismic resistance. The detailed design for the project roads will be carried out under RIIDP. The institutional capacity development component will be designed during the PPTA based on an assessment of DPWH's capacity.

Description The impact of the project will be improved accessibility of transport infrastructure. The outcome of the project will be improved quality of the national road network in Mindanao. The outputs will be (i) improvement of about 400 km of 10 national roads; (ii) detailed engineering design for roads to be improved under future projects; and (iii) strengthened institutional capacity of DPWH. The road improvement works will include paving earth roads, replacing road sections washed out by floods, widening existing roads, adding surface overlays, and replacement and strengthening of bridges. The works will incorporate international best practice for road safety, climate change adaptation, and seismic resistance. The detailed design for the project roads will be carried out under RIIDP. The institutional capacity development component will be designed during the PPTA based on an assessment of DPWH's capacity. It will likely focus on the capacity of the DPWH regional and district offices in the project area, particularly on project implementation and dealing with increasingly frequent natural disasters.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The project supports increased economic growth in Mindanao by improving national roads on the island. The project supports the Government of the Philippines' priorities for improvement of the country's road network and development of Mindanao. It also supports the key objective of ADB's strategy for the Philippines of helping the country achieve high, inclusive, and sustainable growth. The project is consistent with ADB's Strategy 2020 through its focus on improving the delivery of infrastructure services as well as investing in physical assets. The project supports regional cooperation and integration by contributing to the implementation of the ASEAN Highway and BIMP-EAGA Priority Infrastructure Projects. It supports ADB's Sustainable Transport Initiative by addressing climate change and road safety, and it is included in ADB's Philippines Transport Sector Assessment, Strategy, and Road Map.
