According to the bank's website, "The entire project scope will be covered under Tranche 1. Tranche 1 will finance the first slice of the works contract packages and consulting services.
The project is to rehabilitate or upgrade about 35 kilometers of urban and rural roads in Honiara and the surrounding regions in Guadalcanal Province, construct two rural wharves, and reconstruct and strengthen an old wharf in Honiara port. The objective is to improve connectivity, efficiency, and disaster resilience of the transportation network 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 aggravate 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.
