Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

The current condition of the 34 km Bishkek Bypass road is poor with an average International Roughness Index (IRI) in excess of 8 m/km . The proposed upgrading and widening of the road will improve the IRI to less than 3 m/km. This road improvement will contribute to regional cooperation through (i) linking the CAREC Corridors 1 and 3; (ii) providing global connectivity to the Bishkek FEZ and Dordoy Bazaar; and (iii) linking ABEC with Bishkek-Osh Road and Bishkek-Torugart Road. It will also improve domestic connectivity and reduce congestion in Bishkek city. Taking on board the consultations with the Bishkek Mayor's office as well as urban experts within ADB, the development of a green zone on both sides of the project road will mitigate urban sprawl and reduce congestion in future. A vocational training component will provide alternative livelihood opportunities for the people living in the project area. Finally, to address road safety issues in the country, it is proposed to carry out institutional reforms in the MOTR to set up a dedicated unit for road safety, which will supervise road safety audits on all road reconstruction projects in the country.

The proposed project is consistent with the Country Partnership Strategy, which advocates (i) accelerating economic growth through continuing interventions in the transport sector focusing on cross border roads that facilitate development of CAREC transport corridors; (ii) improve inclusiveness and sustainability enhance by enhancing employability of the population through skills development and strengthening climate change resilience; and (iii) leveraging regional cooperation by developing regional transportation links and accompanying logistics.
