Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

The SAARC Thimphu Summit in 2010 recognized the importance of developing transport infrastructure and transit facilities, especially for the landlocked countries to promote intra-SAARC trade. Agreements between Bangladesh and India in 2010 for regional connectivity is a critical stepping stone for opening connectivity, not only between Bangladesh and India, but also with Bhutan and Nepal, diversifying regional and international transport routes. This will enhance markets and opportunities of regional development in South Asia, leading to balanced regional growth and poverty reduction.

Bangladesh has the potential to become a transport and transshipment center for the subregion. It borders India and Myanmar and is close to the landlocked countries of Bhutan and Nepal, and Kunming, the key transportation hub in Southwest China. With the opening of the Bhangabandhu Bridge over River Jamuna (the Jamuna Multipurpose Bridge) and the provision of access to ports, e.g., Chittagong and Mongla, for these countries, the Northwest-Dhaka-Chittagong transport corridor and other strategic transport corridors can facilitate trade between Bangladesh and the northeastern states of India, the Indian state of West Bengal, Bhutan, and Nepal and thereby attract more foreign and domestic investment to the country. Bangladesh has major international and subregional trade corridors as identified in SAARC Regional Multimodal Transport Study and the Asian Highways network.

A study on transit traffic through Bangladesh estimates that the improvement of Bangladeshi sections of priority regional transport corridors could facilitate the movement of about 18 million tons of freight in Bhutan, India, and Nepal. A World Bank study shows that the impact of raising South Asia's trade facilitation performance toward international levels would result in large gains for both intra and inter-regional trade, e.g., intra-regional trade within South Asia would increase by almost 60% and trade with the rest of the world would increase by over 30%.

Throughout South Asia, trucks carry a substantial majority of inland freight. The road sector is central to the competitiveness of supply chains. An expansion in rail freight is both desirable and possible, but the absolute importance of road transport is unlikely to diminish, especially as the markets for higher value and higher volume goods increase with per capita incomes. Therefore, among these international trade corridors, the highest priority is SAARC Highway Corridors (SHC) 4 and 8, which provide Bhutan and Nepal with the access to Bangladesh ports (Chittagong and Mongla), including land ports. For trades between Bangladesh and India, the Benapole land port (BLP) is the priority to be improved as it is the busiest crossing, providing transshipment services for around 80% of the annual trades between the two countries, e.g., 450 trucks a day carrying in total an estimated 1.4 billion tones valued at $4 billion passed BLP in 2010/11.

The road network in Bangladesh is very poor in terms of capacity and conditions, and the demand for road transport is rapidly increasing. Insufficient funding and inefficient implementation of road maintenance have increased the number of roads that are beyond maintainable condition, and the backlog of deferred maintenance. A mix of motorized and non-motorized traffic, and encroachment onto roads, results in higher accident rates. The large number of rivers that are still crossed by ferries hampers smooth movement of traffic. To address these constraints, the Government of Bangladesh (GOB) developed and has been implementing the Road Master Plan (2007/2026). The road sector development strategy under Bangladesh's 6th Five-Year Plan (FY2011-2015) highlights (i) prioritized undertaking of development projects, (ii) cost recovery from users, (iii) streamlining procedures of pre-construction activities, (iv) private sector financing, and (v) road sector institutional strengthening, as provided in the Road Master Plan. One of the major tasks is the improvement of the regional road connectivity to boost trade and commerce, pursuing the policy of corridor based road development with a view to accommodate regional as well as international traffic in the country. GOB plans to upgrade the Asian Highway Network in Bangladesh into 4 lanes, with special emphasis on 3 arterial corridors: Dhaka-Chittagong, Dhaka-Northwest, and Khulna-Northwest. The road sector strategy in the 6th Five-Year Plan includes institutional changes, and capacity development in maintaining existing road network, addressing road safety issues, improving land port connectivity, and controlling overload.

RHD developed and manages major highways and urban areas. ADB-financed Road Network Improvement and Maintenance Project II provided a list of reform agenda for the road sector in Bangladesh, together with DFID and the World Bank, mainly covering (i) a long-term and integrated transport policy, (ii) modernization of the road sector institution, (iii) road maintenance financing, and (iv) private sector participation. The overall progress has been slow, but GOB took initiatives to address weaknesses. The road master plan has been approved and the national land transport policy is prepared. MOC and RHD have been restructured. RHD has computerized its financial management and asset management systems, supported by DFID. The central management system (CMS) is now spread for the RHD-wide use at the district level. The procurement capacity is being strengthened under the World Bank's Public Procurement Reform II, utilizing CMS and introducing e-procurement. Pending liability for major unpaid contracts has been eliminated except delayed release of the approved budget. The maintenance financing has substantially increased, and the latest approved budget for 2012/13 demonstrated the GOB's policy emphasis on the maintenance, e.g., increase by 20% for the revenue budget from 2011/12 while reduction for the development budget. PPP cell has been established in RHD and Pilot PPP road projects have been identified. The project will continue these reform agenda, as agreed in the Institutional Development Action Plan (Supplementary Appendix A).

The Land Port Authority (LPA) currently administers 16 land ports. As development and operations are mainly outsourced to private sector, LPA is a lean organization and financially self-sustained for the current level of operational efficiency and volumes. However, taking into account expected increase to trades among SASEC countries through land ports based on recent dialogue, it is urgently required to improve facilities for operational efficiency.

The project road is the common section of SHC 4 and 8, and also the Asian Highway No. 2, carrying the traffic, i.e., about 15,000 vehicles per day, excluding 2 and 3 wheelers, which is second busiest to the Dhaka-Chittagong road. However, this road section experiences substantial bottlenecks due to limited capacity, pavement deterioration and mixed traffic of slow moving vehicles, which also results in many traffic accidents at several accident-prone areas so-called safety blackspots. The Burmari land port is one of the northwestern end points of the Dhaka-Northwest corridor, providing a gateway to Bhutan through India via SHC 8. The Benapole land port is the busiest land port at the west end point of the Asian Highway No.1 and SHC No.1 in Bangladesh. Both Burimari and Benapole landports are complemented by the India's ongoing Integrated Customs Posts Program at Changrabandha and Petrapole, respectively on the Indian side. The proposed scope has been endorsed by the SASEC Trade Facilitation and Transport Working Group meeting held in Kolkata on 5 March 2012 (see Map).

Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects
Environmental Aspects The project is categorized as 'B' for environmental safeguards as the impacts are expected to be minor to moderate, short-term, local and reversible and mitigation measures are readily available to minimize the impacts. As required by ADB SPS 2009, the Initial Environmental Examinations (IEEs) prepared on various components of the project are- (i) Joydeypur-Chandra-Tangail-Elenga road upgradation, (ii) RHD Headquarters building, (iii) Land port in Bhurimari, and (iv) Land port in Benapole. The semi-annual Environmental Monitoring Reports (EMRs) for January-June 2020 reporting period have been received by ADB and disclosed. The recruitment of Environmental Monitoring Officers (EMOs) by the contractors, as recommended by ADB in January 2020, has made some improvement in occupational health and safety, emergency preparedness, use of personal protective equipment, general housekeeping, safe containment of hazardous materials, upkeep of labor sheds, traffic management and dust control. RHD has also appointed an Executive Engineer (Deputy Project Director) as an environmental focal for the project. The contractors are complying with the regulations of Bangladesh National Building Code (BNBC) regarding safe scaffolding, ladders, working platforms, gangway, stairwells and safe means of entry and egress; and have established firefighting and safety facilities in the camp. During July 2020 Mission, the Mission reminded that following the government instructions and ADB guidance, contractors of all works contracts are required to prepare the site-specific health and safety (H&S) plan to address COVID-19 pandemic related health and safety issues encompassing constructions sites and workers' sheds, and RHD as the employer is required to approve contractors' H&S Plan and monitor compliance. To comply with occupational H&S plan, the use of personal protective equipment at worksites must be ensured. During this mission, the Mission noted that the supervision of EMP implementation including ensuring occupational H&S compliance in entire 70 km corridor by one environment specialist is difficult and advised the EA to check whether additional resources can be mobilized to provide additional support.
Involuntary Resettlement The project has been categorized 'A' for involuntary resettlement. The project has suffered significant delays in the land acquisition and implementation of resettlement plans (RPs). However, the land acquisition for 87.43 acres land under 12 land acquisition (LA) cases of the original scope has been completed. Due to the significant additional works with variation order for the revised scopes, the project required a supplementary resettlement plan (SRP) for additional 84.08 acres of land with 8 LA cases. The joint verification for SRP among the concerned agencies and land/asset owners are completed for 6 of the 8 LA cases, and the verification for remaining 2 LA cases is ongoing. The verification of these remaining 2 LA cases was delayed due to COVID-19 pandemic. However, the remaining verification is completed now and the land acquisition is expected to be completed by 30 November 2020.
Indigenous Peoples The project is not expected to have impacts on Indigenous Peoples.
Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design Workshops, community mobilization, and consultation conducted for discussion on the potential needs of the community, social related issues such as gender, HIV/AIDs, human trafficking, child labor, environment and social safeguard issues.Community meetings and focus group discussions are organized as part of the poverty and social analysis. The local consultative meetings involve all relevant stakeholders including representatives of the poor and other socially excluded groups (e.g., women, scheduled tribes, etc.) to disseminate the information as well as to get the feedback about the project design and its potential impacts. Other key stakeholders such as the relevant line departments, local government representatives and NGOs are also be consulted. Consultations were undertaken with the affected households and communities during the course of the census survey and socioeconomic survey along the project roads for the preparation of the safeguard plans. In the Resettlement Plans, a C&P plan is included for project implementation phase.
During Project Implementation Stakeholder consultation is being regularly conducted by the INGO and the participation of loacl people, especially women, in project implementaion is being encoraged by RHD as the project has actively integrated gender responsive designs in construction work for road improvement.
Business Opportunities
Consulting Services

An estimated 2,710 person-months (249 international, 2,461 national) of consulting services are required to (i) facilitate project management and implementation for LPA and RHD, and (ii) enhance operational efficiency of LPA. Consulting firms will be engaged using the quality- and cost-based selection (QCBS) method with a quality:cost ratio of 90:10. A higher quality ratio is adopted because the task involves a certain level of innovativeness to coordinate with LPA and RHD, and to mobilize and manage several teams at the same time. To engage quality consultants in a timely manner, ADB and the government have agreed that ADB carry out consultant selection on behalf of the government. The government will retain its authority for contract negotiation and contract signing.

The proposed TA will undertake 3 major components: (i) maintenance scheme for roads and bridges, (ii) overloading control scheme, and (iii) RHD modernization, covering institutional changes and streamlining business processes. As part of the capacity development for procurement processes, the TA will also provide for a procurement review to be undertaken for the proposed project. It is proposed that ADB will finance $1,500,000 equivalent, on a grant basis from a trust fund.

Procurement Procurement activities will be the responsibility of the Project Directors, who will be supported by the consultants under TA loan 2688 and the PIC. ADB engaged an international consultant during procurement processes for probity. ADB will closely monitor all procurement and implementation activities. Contracts for civil works and goods will comprise about 7 international competitive bidding (ICB) packages. Contract packages for equipment under RHD institutional development will be based on required technical features and timing of procurement. Packages will be identified during implementation by consultants engaged under technical assistance.
