According to the AIIB, the objective of the project is to contribute to urban mobility improvement in the National Capital Region and key areas along the Laguna de Bay.
The Laguna Lakeshore Road Network (LLRN) Program comprises about 37.4 kilometers expressway from Lower Bicutan in NCR to Calamba in Laguna Province, consisting of (i) 11.7 km long viaduct from Lower Bicutan to Tunasan; and (ii) 25.7km long combination of shoreline viaduct and embankment from Tunasan to Calamba. The expressway will be an access-controlled road with eight interchanges, with an access road at each interchange to connect to the existing road networks. The Program will also finance capacity building activities to improve the government's operation and maintenance and administration/management capacities for LLRN and large-scale interchanges. The Program is expected to be financed in three phases.
The Project is the first phase of the Program and will finance the first group of the civil works and consulting service contracts awarded under the Program.
ADB has categorized the E&S risks of the Program/Project as Category A for Environment, A for Involuntary Resettlement, and C for Indigenous Peoples.

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
