Project Description
Component 1: Road Asset Preservation. This component comprises two subcomponents: (a) performance-based contracts; and (b) emergency small scale road repairs Subcomponent 1.1: Performance-based contracts. This subcomponent will finance the carrying-out under performance-based maintenance contracts (PBMC) of (a) rehabilitation works; and (b) routine maintenance including emergency works. The roads selected for PBMC will be prioritized based on an economic analysis (costs-benefits analysis; cost-effectiveness method; multi-criteria analysis). In addition, the rehabilitation will be an upgrading of dirt roads into cobblestone roads or a rehabilitation of cobblestone roads. As much as possible, the road will not be widened to minimize land acquisition. The number of jobs created and the volume of revenues distributed through the use of cobblestones will be closely monitored. Subcomponent 1.2: Emergency works.
