Description

The proposed additional financing will scale up the current output 1 by adding approximately 930 kilometers of rural roads.

The current project (i) upgrades about 1,700 kilometers of rural roads to all-weather standards with climate resilience and safety features in 34 districts in five divisions; (ii) improves capacity of the rural infrastructure agency; and (iii) upgrades the national rural road master plan using a geographic information system. It will have the following outcome: transport efficiency and related employment generated in target areas increased. The outputs are (i) rural road conditions between selected rural communities, productive agricultural areas, and socioeconomic centers improved; (ii) capacity of rural infrastructure agency and road users in project areas enhanced; and (iii) rural road master planning enhanced. The executing agency is the Local Government Engineering Department (LGED) in the Local Government Division of the Ministry of Local Government, Rural Development and Cooperatives (MOLGRDC). A Dhaka-based project management unit within LGED supports project implementation, and there are five project implementation units at division level, 34 offices at district level, and 180 site offices at subdistrict level.

Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The additional financing will increase the project's scope by upgrading an additional 930 km of rural roads under the same implementation arrangements as for the current project. The overall project scope is aligned with the government's priorities under the Seventh Five Year Plan, FY2016 FY20207 and ADB's country partnership strategy for Bangladesh, 2016 2020.
Impact Connectivity between rural communities, productive agricultural areas, and socioeconomic centers in Bangladesh improved (Seventh Five Year Plan, FY2016 FY2020)
