Description

This report and recommendation of the president for the proposed Greater Dhaka Sustainable Urban Transport Project in Bangladesh describes the terms and conditions for the approval of ADB's Management or Board of Directors.

The project will contribute to developing a sustainable urban transport system in Dhaka North City Corporation and Gazipur City Corporation areas, which form part of north Greater Dhaka, through the delivery of a 20 km bus rapid transit (BRT) corridor. This pilot project provides a holistic solution for integrated urban mobility, bearing a demonstration effect as no modern mass transit system exists in Bangladesh yet.
