According to the CDB, the project will increase the efficiency, accessibility, safety and resilience to climate hazards along 122km of the road corridor between Linden and Mabura Hill; improve attitudes and practices regarding livelihood opportunities, social inclusion and gender equality among community residents; and enhance compliance with the Axle Load Control Programme among transport operators and government agencies in Guyana.
The upgraded corridor is expected to facilitate increased trade with neighbouring South American countries.
As stated by the CDB, "The overall project risk can be described as moderate".
The United Kingdom Caribbean Infrastructure Partnership Fund will provide a grant for the project in the amount of USD 66,277,000, and the Government of Guyana will contribute to the project with USD 11,556,000.
