Project Description

The Asian Development Bank (ADB), at the request of the Government of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar, provided financial assistance for the improvement of 66.4 kilometer (km) of road between Eindu and Kawkareik, in Kayin State. The project road will be improved to the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) road network standard of two lanes with appropriate width paved shoulders, suitable for all standard highway traffic. The section will require complete reconstruction, with some short sections of realignment for improved vehicle operating speed and road safety. The project also includes design features for climate resilience in this flood-prone area, including raising the road to a level that takes into account potentially higher future flood levels to provide year-round access.

As a project due diligence for ADB financial support to the project, a technical assistance grant was provided to assist the government in the preparation of the project, including engineering, economic, social and environmental safeguards and financing requirements of the project.
