Improving National Roads for Inclusive Growth in Mindanao Project

Project Description
According to ADB website, the impact of the project will be improved accessibility of transport infrastructure. The outcome of the project will be improved quality of the national road network in Mindanao. The road improvement works will include paving earth roads, replacing road sections washed out by floods, widening existing roads, adding surface overlays, and replacement and strengthening of bridges. The works will incorporate international best practice for road safety, climate change adaptation, and seismic resistance. The detailed design for the project roads will be carried out under RIIDP. The institutional capacity development component will be designed during the PPTA based on an assessment of DPWH's capacity. It will likely focus on the capacity of the DPWH regional and district offices in the project area, particularly on project implementation and dealing with increasingly frequent natural disasters.
