Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

According to the Bank’s website, the Project aims to improve the linkage of townships of Baihua Lake area to other parts of the city through upgrade of Xiaokang Road. The traffic time needed for their residents to reach other city areas will be significantly shortened upon completion of the Project, resulting in better integration of their economic and social activities with the rest of the city.

The Project will also i) construct a dedicated road for pedestrians and non-motorized vehicles, and ii) put in place a network of pipes to collect wastewater and reduce pollution of Baihua Lake. The non-motorized road will not only substantially enhance the road safety but also boost tourism development around the Baihua Lake Scenic Area. With the pipeline network built as part of the Project, the wastewater in the area will be carried to Jinbai Wastewater Treatment Plant for treatment, avoiding pollution of the lake.

The Project features elements of digital infrastructure. A smart traffic management system, including a real-time traffic monitoring system and a data center, will collect and process traffic data in Baihua Lake Scenic Area. It will form part of the big data platform at the city level.

The Project comprises: (i) upgrade of Xiaokang Road to Class III standard (including upgrade of 22.8 km of the existing road, and construction of 5.3 km of a new road), with lighting along 33.8 km and a smart traffic management system; (ii) construction of a non-motorized road of Class IV standard for bicycles and pedestrians along the Baihua Lake with a total length of 47.4 km, with associated parking lots, observation decks, landscaping and lighting; (iii) waste water pipeline network along the Baihua Lake and (iv) institutional capacity building for the Project implementation, including consulting services for enhanced management and operation of roads and parks, and staff training.
