Project Description

According to ADB website, the Maubin-Phyapon road section will be reconstructed to 2 lanes with appropriate width shoulders, suitable for all standard highway traffic. The proposed project aims to:
1. Improve access to and within the Ayeyarwaddy Delta by rehabilitating 54.5 km of road between Maubin and Phyapon, the principal north-south artery on the eastern edge of the Ayeyarwaddy Delta, and
2. Provide an essential transport link connection to economic, health, education, and employment opportunities.

The addition of landing points at the numerous locations where waterways meet the road, the agricultural hinterland of this part of the delta region, will be made more accessible and improve the lives of many of the region's poor through increased opportunities for income generation and improved rural livelihoods.

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.
