Project Description
<div>According to bank documents, the project incorporates elements predicated on the four pillars of the Sustainable Mobility for All (SuM4All) agenda: the primary investment in rural road infrastructure supports universal access by enabling the travel needs of rural communities; the designated road segment improves transport efficiency by reducing travel time and costs for both people and goods, while effectively connecting agricultural areas to markets and opening up an area with great potential for tourism; road safety aspects will be integrated into the project design in an effort to avoid road-related fatalities, injuries, and crashes; andgreen mobility objectives will be met by ensuring climate mitigation and adaptation measures are embedded in the road asset.</div>
