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.

The Project Development Objective (PDO) is to improve urban transport services, mobility and accessibility to jobs in
the North of the City of Lima. 

The project focuses on: (a) delivering the extension of the BRT Infrastructure in the north area of Lima (segregated
corridor, stations, pedestrian bridges, U-turns and bus depot) and a wastewater treatment plant; and (b) the
necessary equipment and technology. The proposed project will also provide an opportunity in the short term for
PPP financing of additional fleet to support the BRT extension and fare collection system.

People Affected By This Project
People Affected By This Project refers to the communities of people likely to be affected positively or negatively by a project.

he environmental and social risk classification is substantial under the ESF. The classification responds to risks and impacts across the project's large
geographic footprint and associated indirect area of influence along the corridors of intervention and their various intersections. These risks are mainly associated with the complex institutional arrangements of project implementation; PIU’s lack of ability to manage social and environmental risks and impacts in accordance with the Bank’s ESF; risks of inadequately handling occupational and community health and safety issues and traffic management during construction.
Potential environmental risk are related to: i) construction-related activities may include overall nuisance to the communities due to noise and vibration, dust, traffic congestion, waste, and visual disturbances, as well as by the removal and relocation of aproximately 3,500 trees; (ii) Inadequate sourcing and transportation of construction material from quarries, as well as transportation and disposal of surplus materials during construction; (iii) Inadequate handling and disposal of waste and hazardous materials during construction and consequent potential contamination of soil
and/or water; (iv) Contamination of soil and/or underground water due to expansion and operation of a wastewater treatment plant, and relocation of existing sewage canal, activities that are part of the project; (v) Inadequatemanagement of existing environmental liabilities among others.
Potential adverse social impacts and risks attributable to the project include: (i) the need to relocate approximately 800 informal vendors located in the right of way; (ii) the land acquisition of 11 social units (three residential dwellings, three commercial establishments, and five residential and commercial structures; (iii) relocation of a small religious chapel located in the District of Comas that belongs to the community; iv) socioeconomic risk associated to restrictions in access to residential, commercial, and public services, including education (preschools, schools, universities) and health (clinics, hospitals), as a result of construction, traffic deviations, and street closings; and (v) risks of community health and safety.
In addition, there is a significant contextual and stakeholder risk associated to the complex urban settings in which the BRT expansion will be implemented, including the risk of reproducing a system of gender harassment and citizen insecurity present in the current Metropolitano.

Contact Information
This section aims to support the local communities and local CSO to get to know which stakeholders are involved in a project with their roles and responsibilities. If available, there may be a complaint office for the respective bank which operates independently to receive and determine violations in policy and practice. Independent Accountability Mechanisms receive and respond to complaints. Most Independent Accountability Mechanisms offer two functions for addressing complaints: dispute resolution and compliance review.


The World Bank Inspection Panel is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by a World Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Inspection Panel, they may investigate to assess whether the World Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment.
