Description

The Hubei-Yichang Municipal Government proposes a project with the following components: (i) road reconstruction and installation of bus rapid transit (BRT) corridor (23.9 kilometers [km]), (ii) establishing BRT services; (iii) construction of two road sections (24.7 km) to support logistics park development and to accommodate increasing pass-dam transshipment demand; and (iv) support for non-motorized transport (NMT), travel demand management (TDM) in Yichang central business district (CBD) through parking management.

The proposed Project is aligned with the key thrusts of ADB's assistance to the PRC under the PRC Country Partnership Strategy (CPS) in the areas of: (i) inclusive growth and balanced development by promoting urbanization in less developed regions, and (ii) resource efficiency and environmental sustainabilityby promoting efficient and sustainable urban transport and transit-oriented development. The focus on public transport and multi-modal integration fits well with ADB's Sustainable Transport Initiative (STI).

Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy Yichang is facing two main transport challenges. The first challenge is to develop its transport system to support urban and industrial development in a sustainable way. The main districts, industrial sites, stations, and terminals need to be served by efficient public transport services to reduce transport cost, provide increased accessibility to jobs and services, and promote economic development. Currently bus services have no lane priority and the route structure is not adequately serving the city. The second challenge is to enhance the logistics hub function of Yichang by providing efficient accessibility to the logistic parks being developed in the city, and provide means of meeting the increasing demand for pass-dam transshipment. An efficient logistics hub function and increased pass-dam transshipment capacity will decrease logistics costs and environmental costs around the region by enabling increased use of inland waterways.
