India : Uttar Pradesh Major District Roads Improvement Project
The project will improve about 430 kilometers (km) of major district roads (MDRs) in the state of Uttar Pradesh, in line with the Strategic Core Road Network Master Plan for Uttar Pradesh. It will involve upgrading of MDRs depending on traffic requirements; reconstruction, widening and strengthening of culverts and bridges; and maintenance of the improved road assets for 5 years after construction. The project will also conduct a road safety audit of the MDRs on the core road network (CRN) and initiate remedial measures at identified critical locations.

|Description||The project will improve about 430 kilometers (km) of major district roads (MDRs) in the state of Uttar Pradesh, in line with the Strategic Core Road Network Master Plan for Uttar Pradesh. It will involve upgrading of MDRs depending on traffic requirements; reconstruction, widening and strengthening of culverts and bridges; and maintenance of the improved road assets for 5 years after construction. The project will also conduct a road safety audit of the MDRs on the core road network (CRN) and initiate remedial measures at identified critical locations.|
|Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy||Despite accounting for just 7% of India''s geographic area, Uttar Pradesh is home to about 200 million (or 16%) of the national population, making it the country''s most populous state. It is also one of India''s poorest states. Although Uttar Pradesh contributes about 8.5% to the country''s gross domestic product, its per capita income is less than half the national average. Uttar Pradesh also has the largest rural population in the country. Almost 80% of its population lives in rural areas, where agriculture is the main economic activity and contributes 46% to the state's income. Given the dispersed nature of industrial development, the road network is a critical economic infrastructure. Uttar Pradesh''s total road network is about 300,000 km, and the road density per 100,000 people is 104 km against a national average of 142 km. About 40% of its road network is rated poor to very poor, and only 13% is rated good. About 58% of this network has road width of less than 5.5 meters and barely 5% is wider than two lanes. If appropriate road capacity metrics are used, only 35% of national highways and 60% of state highways have comfortable capacity utilization, while the rest need capacity augmentation such as widening.|
