According to bank documents, "The project aims to build an ultra-high voltage transmission corridor between the major economic centers of Chittagong and Dhaka. Scope of works of the project includes construction of “Madunaghat-Bhulta” 765-kilovolt (kV) double circuit line and the related extension of substations. The use of ultra-high voltage line will (a) help avoid building more transmission lines, thus saving valuable land and minimizing negative social impacts on a densely populated area; (b) allow the transmission of high volumes of electricity for the needs of a rapidly developing economy and (c) improve reliability and decrease system losses."
