According to the Bank’s website, the project road is a two-lane carriageway and carries about 14,000 vehicles per day. Traffic is forecast to reach 48,800 vehicles per day by 2041. The road will be median-divided and provides service lanes, footpath, and cycle lane in urban areas. Through the project, the road will be upgraded to a two-lane dual carriageway to accommodate the increasing traffic demand, with improved geometry, pavement, drainage, road safety, and climate- and disaster-resilient features. Grade separation or traffic signal will be adopted at junctions to improve safety for vulnerable road users including women and children who are more likely to walk, cycle or use public transport. River training and bank protection works will minimize the risk of erosion. The project design incorporates lessons from previous projects, including readiness, procurement, asset management and sustainability.

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.
