According to the bank's website, "The project is to rehabilitate or upgrade about 35 kilometers of urban and rural roads in Honiara city and the surrounding regions in Guadalcanal Province, construct up to 7 rural wharves, and reconstruct an old wharf in Honiara port. The objective is to improve transport connectivity and efficiency of trade activities in Solomon Islands. The east-west Guadalcanal road corridor is in deteriorating condition, critical urban road sections have capacity constraints leading to traffic congestion, and inadequate maritime facilities aggravating efficiency of shipping services. The proposed project will provide road and maritime infrastructure, ensuring access to basic services, increase income generating opportunities, and promote social cohesiveness."

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
