The principal objectives of the Project are to promote economic growth and thus reduce poverty in eastern Gansu Province by lowering the cost of transport, relieving traffic congestion, and improving access in the project area. The Project will (i) reduce traffic accidents and vehicle operating costs; (ii) improve access between Lanzhou and Xi'an, two major growth centers in northwestern PRC; (iii) provide additional transport capacity to accommodate traffic growth due to economic growth and the shift to more market responsive road based transportation; and (iv) provide improved access for the poor rural population. The Project will also support reforms relating to poverty reduction, corporate governance, private sector development, and road safety and vehicle emissions.
