According to the bank's website, "The project will dualize about 520 kilometers (km) of provincial highways in south Punjab from the existing two-lane to divided four-lane standards with road safety and climate resilience features. It will also engage concessionaires to conduct operations and maintenance for the project roads through tolling and performance-based maintenance approach.
It will also support the government to (i) establish a dedicated entity with streamlined funding to manage all provincial highways in Punjab; (ii) conduct road safety assessment for the provincial highway network of Punjab and pilot the Safe System approach with a framework and action plan; and (iii) improve climate resilience of the road network and Communication and Works Department's disaster-response capability."

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.
