Description

The Shaanxi Provincial Government (SPG) has requested ADB financing for a project to rehabilitate and upgrade provincial and rural roads to improve road safety. Shaanxi Province is one of the least developed provinces in the People's Republic of China (PRC) in terms of per capita GDP, per capita urban income and per capita rural income at about 90%, 82%, and 69% of the national averages in 2010. The project is in the Qinba Mountains area in southwest Shaanxi Province, one of the 11 porest regions targeted for concentrated interventions under the 2011-2020 poverty reduction strategy of the PRC Government. The project areas had an overall poverty incidence of over 35% in 2011.

The project investments will be located in Ankang and Shangluo, two prefecture-level cities in the Qinba Mountains area that have populations of 2.95 million and 2.41 million respectively. Together, these municipalities account for almost 15% of Shaanxi Province's population. Both Ankang and Shangluo have strong potential for expansion of agriculture and related processing, mineral and hydropower industries, and the development of tourism. Lack of adequate transport accessibility and highly unsafe road conditions are major constraints on the social and economic development of the region.

Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The proposed project is in line with ADB's PRC country partnership strategy (CPS) 2011-2015 which identifies improving road safety and rural roads as key areas of support.

Also, other collaborating agencies that are engaged in various development adcitivities will be consulted.
During Project Implementation Ongoing.
Business Opportunities

Individual con consultants will be engaged for up to 2 person months for an international road safety specialist. The national firm will provide 12 person months of national road safety experts and is proposed to be recruited using single-source selection. An internationl firm will be engaged to prepare the due diligence and overall PPTA coordiantion and include up to 10 person months of international consultants and 21 person months of national consultants inputs.
