Rural Roads Improvement Project III (Loan 3678)
The project will rehabilitate about 360 kilometers (km) of rural roads in five provinces (Kampong Cham, Kratie, Prey Veng, Svay Rieng, and Tboung Khmum) to paved condition. The rehabilitated roads will provide poor rural provinces with a disaster and climate-resilient, safer, and cost-effective rural road network with all-year access to markets and other social services. The proposed RRIP III will continue to support sustainability of this rural road network through: (i) a rural road maintenance regime in the Ministry of Rural Development (MRD); and (ii) a community-based road safety program. These initiatives have already been established by MRD through earlier ADB-financed projects, RRIP and RRIP II. The project will also support an HIV/AIDS and human trafficking awareness and prevention program (HHTPP). The feasibility study of the proposed project was completed through the ongoing loan for RRIP II.
Progress (as of March 2021)
