This report and recommendation of the President for the proposed additional financing loan to India for the Bihar State Highways II Project describes the terms and conditions for the approval of the Board of Directors of ADB.

The additional financing will expand the original project by rehabilitating and upgrading 254 kilometers (km) of state highways in Bihar identified under the Bihar State Highways Development Program, 2007–2012. These severely deteriorated highway sections are in the very poor northern and southern parts of the state. The project will upgrade existing roads to two lanes, strengthen existing pavement, strengthen culverts and bridges, and construct new bridges and cross-draining structures. Consulting services will be provided to supervise the implementation of civil works.
