According to the AIIB, the aim of the project is to improve efficiency and resilience of existing road transport connectivity between Dhaka and surrounding areas.
The scope of the Project is to design, build and operate a 12.5km four-lane access-controlled highway, including an 8.15km elevated section and a 4.35km at-grade section, by way of upgrading an existing two-lane undivided carriageway. The Project starts at the Chittagong Interchange with access to the National Highway N1, connects to the National Highway N2 at the Demra access point, and ends at Rampura Interchange, which is located in a densely populated area in Dhaka. The width of the proposed road will be around 18m in the elevated section and 32m in the at-grade section.
According to Bloomberg, China Road and Bridge Corporation merged with China Harbour Engineering Company (Group) to form China Communications Construction Group Ltd.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF AIIB
The AIIB has established the Accountability Mechanism for Project-Affected People (PPM). The PPM provides Òan opportunity for an independent and impartial review of submissions from Project-affected people who believe they have been or are likely to be adversely affected by AIIBÕs failure to implement the ESP in situations when their concerns cannot be addressed satisfactorily through Project level GRMs or AIIB Management processes.Ó Two or more project-affected people can file a complaint. Under the current AIIB policy, when the bank co-finances a project with another development bank, it may apply the other bank's standards. You can refer to the Project Summary Information document to find out which standards apply. You can learn more about the PPM and how to file a complaint at: https://www.aiib.org/en/about-aiib/who-we-are/project-affected-peoples-mechanism/how-we-assist-you/index.html
