Project Description

According to the bank document, the proposed project aims to improve transport mobility and accessibility to selected areas of Yining Municipality in a safe, sustainable and inclusive manner. The proposed project consists of four components described below:

Component 1: Integrated Transport Corridors (approx. CNY 511 million; US$ 77.42 million). Improvements to infrastructure and traffic management on 8 existing arterial roads and one new
connecting road (approximately 22 km in length), including enhanced area traffic control, NMT facilities, and two dedicated bus lanes (approximately 7 km in length).

Component 2: Neighborhood Streets (approx. CNY 153.3 million; US$ 23.22 million). Selectively upgrading existing streets in 4 densely-populated areas in the old city center (approximately 34.5 km in length) inhabited primarily by ethnic minorities by applying “complete street” design to support accessibility and livability, “traffic calming” where appropriate to support road safety, and preserving the cultural character to support sustainable tourism in these neighborhoods.

Component 3: Public Transport Improvements (approx. CNY 220.8 million; US$ 33.5 million). Construction of two new bus depots, purchasing 150 new ‘clean-fuel’ buses with support facilities,
installing intelligent transport systems to improve the planning, management of services, and user information.

Component 4: Institutional Development and Technical Assistance (approx. CNY 13.2 million; US$ 2 million). Studies, training and consulting services to enhance the capacity of all relevant municipal
departments on road asset management, municipal investment planning, fiscal and debt management, performance-based contracts and PPP arrangements, comprehensive transport system planning, public transit smart card system, urban road safety, urban traffic management, project monitoring and evaluation, project safeguard policies and implementation.
