Project General Description

In September 1985, the Bank financed the feasibility and detailed engineering design of the project and the project was appraised in August 1990 by a team of two experts comprising a Transport Engineer and a Transport Economist. The loan conditions were negotiated and there were no issues of disagreement raised by the Bank or the Borrower concerning the project. The loan amount of ADF: UA 15.10 million was approved on 18th December 1990, and signed on 31st January 1991. Due to increase in cost of materials during implementation, additional funds through a Supplementary loan for an amount of UA 6.60 million was approved in October 1997, to meet the additional costs of construction and supervision for completion of the project.

Project Objectives

The project objectives at appraisal were to increase transport service levels and road safety by improving road surface conditions to reduce vehicle operating costs and to improve the Roads Department Staff for project preparation and Management.
