The TA will facilitate introduction of ITS to optimize resource allocation in the PRC's road sector. The TA will focus on how ITS contributes to efficient transport and resource optimization and introduction of applications of ITS, such as selection of applications for resource optimization, prioritizing applications and strategy to deploy applications. The TA will also support implementation of outputs of the ongoing TA4877-PRC: Resource Optimization in Road Sector. Introduction of selective and prioritized applications with a sound deployment strategy and an action plan will increase traffic efficiency, quality of transport services, road safety, and then increase resource optimization in the road sector and environment conservation.

|Description||The TA will facilitate introduction of ITS to optimize resource allocation in the PRC's road sector. The TA will focus on how ITS contributes to efficient transport and resource optimization and introduction of applications of ITS, such as selection of applications for resource optimization, prioritizing applications and strategy to deploy applications. The TA will also support implementation of outputs of the ongoing TA4877-PRC: Resource Optimization in Road Sector. Introduction of selective and prioritized applications with a sound deployment strategy and an action plan will increase traffic efficiency, quality of transport services, road safety, and then increase resource optimization in the road sector and environment conservation.|
|Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy||The TA will build on the work of a previous TA for Transport Information System (planned for approval in 2007), which is aimed at supporting establishment of standards of intelligent transport system. This TA will carry out a further study such as feasibility of applications to be introduced in the PRC, prioritization of applications, strategy on how to implement applications, necessary steps to deploy intelligent transport system (ITS) and an action plan. The TA will help the Ministry of Transport plan and manage the road transport system by using the information technology. The TA is therefore, in line with the PRC?s Country Strategy that promotes equitable and inclusive growth.|
|Impact||The TA impact will be safe, efficient, and sustainable road transport in the PRC.|
|Description of Outcome||The outcome of the TA will include policy recommendations, guidelines, and recommendations for intelligent transport systems projects provided for the consideration of the national Government and provincial governments.|
|Progress Toward Outcome||The findings of the TA has been presented during the Review mission in March 2012. These findings will be published as a book by MOT and ADB, and is expected to be disseminated tentatively in 2012.|
|Description of Project Outputs||The outputs of the TA will be (i) policy recommendations for the application of ITS, (ii) guidelines on the application of ITS, (iii) several recommended ITS projects to improve road safety, and (iv) a policy note summarizing best practices for dissemination to high-level policy makers.|
|Status of Implementation Progress (Outputs, Activities, and Issues)||TA completion date has been extended to 30 April 2012. The consultant contract was signed on 4 Dec 2009 and mobilized on 5 Jan 2010. Inception Report was submitted on 29 January 2010 and an inception review workshop was held on 8 February 2010. A revised Inception Report was submitted on 10 March 2010. Tripartite review meetings were held on 20 May 2010 and 16 August 2010 to review the progress and discuss the next steps. The consultants submitted an Interim Report (IR) and a revised IR on 30 September 2010 and 11 November 2010, respectively. An Interim Review Workshop was held on 10 January 2011. The draft final report (DFR) was submitted on 30 April 2011. Second and third revised DFRs were submitted on 30 July 2011 and 30 August 2011, respectively. Based on the results of a review meeting held in September 2011, supplementary case study was conducted in November 2011. The Final Report was submitted on 27 Feb 2012 and final workshop was held on 19-20 Mar 2012. The Final Report was submitted before the completion date of 30 Apr 2012 but still being reviewed and minor work is still needed based on comments received.|
|Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects|
|Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation|
|During Project Design||The EA will conduct workshops for training and dissemination of the knowledge with the assistance of the consultants. MOT will assist in arranging workshops and liaising with the Government agencies concerned and stakeholders.|
|During Project Implementation||Being conducted.|
|Consulting Services||The consultants will be engaged by ADB through a national consulting firm associated with an international firm, in accordance with ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2007, as amended from time to time) on the basis of the quality of the proposal (90%) and the cost (10%) of the services to be provided using the simplified technical proposal procedures. The 90:10 weighting is considered appropriate because the TA is an advanced multidisciplinary assignment that requires creativity and a high level of expertise in advanced technologies and their application, and the quality of the consulting services will have a significant impact on the effectiveness of the TA. The TA will require about 7 person-months of international and about 30 person-months of national consulting services to carry out the terms of reference. The international consultant will have expertise and experience in the fields of road safety and ITS. The national consultants will have expertise and experience in the following fields: (i) road safety, (ii) ITS, (iii) commercial vehicle management, and (iv) transport regulation and standards.|
