Network Improvement

The project will support the up gradation and maintenance of selected roads within the state’s core road network, through three contracting approaches as explained below.

  • Up gradation and maintenance through (EPC) contracts :

Construction of civil works for widening and upgrading of approximately 427 km of roads of Core Road Network (CRN) to two-lane with paved shoulders standards through EPC contracts including maintenance for a 5-year period after the construction

    • Up gradation and maintenance through Public Private Partnership(PPP) concessions: (Modified Annuity)

Construction of civil works for widening and upgrading of approximately 145 km of roads of CRN to four-lane standards and maintenance during the concession period

      • Maintenance through Multi-year Output and Performance Based Road Contract

Maintenance of approximately 600 km of CRN for a 5-year period adopting Multi-yearn Performance-based Contract approach

World Bank loan component will also support the associated activities like transaction advisory, supervision of quality control, and advisory services; shifting of utilities etc. Also, the project roads will be designed and implemented with particular attention to achieve better road safety outcomes especially for the vulnerable road users.

Institutional Capacity Enhancement:

This component aims to implement the Institutional Capacity Enhancement Plan (ICEP) developed by the HD and approved by GoTN. The project will support

(a) Policy level actions and commitments to improve both mobilization and allocation of resources in the road sector.

(b) Operational level initiatives to enhance enterprise-level efficiency through

              1. Process improvements.

              2. Organizational restructuring.

              3. Sustaining investments in IT infrastructure.

              4. Training & Knowledge Management. This component includes mainstreaming and integrating the key IT-based systems i.e. Road Management System (RMS), Project and Finance Management System (PFMS) and Road Accident Data Management System (RADMS).

Road Safety:

In addition to the provisions for better road safety on project roads, the project will support achievement of improved road safety, at two levels, Viz., State and District levels.

EPC mode of contracting :

Construction of civil works for widening and upgrading of 427 kms of roads of Core Road Network (CRN) to two-lane with paved shoulders including maintenance for 5 years have been awarded and works are in progress. Table - 1 shows the details of works under EPC packages.
