The Tranche 3 will continue from Tranches 1 and 2, to establish a sustainable civil aviation network to support the economic growth of the country. Tranche 3 will further strengthen and sustain the operations of National Airports Cooperation (NAC), PNG Air Services Limited (PNG ASL), and Civil Aviation Safety Authority of PNG (CASAPNG). The national airports have low level of compliance with safety and security standards, creating risks of accidents and illegal movements of people and goods. The air-side runway pavements, terminal buildings and utilities are in poor condition. Tranche 3 will improve and upgrade nine national airports including pavement strengthening, runway extensions, security fencing, apron extensions, fire stations, traffic control tower and terminal buildings. In addition, runway lights at seven airports, runway security fencing at three other airports and new market sheds will be constructed for women to promote local artifacts.
To achieve economic growth and poverty reduction in project areas.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF ADB
The Accountability Mechanism is an independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an Asian Development Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Accountability Mechanism, they may investigate to assess whether the Asian Development Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. You can learn more about the Accountability Mechanism and how to file a complaint at: http://www.adb.org/site/accountability-mechanism/main
