According to the bank document, "The Development Objectiveof the Project is to improve access to opportunities for the residents of Thimphu City, and provide reliable, safe, and green urban mobility options to them along the North-South Axis of Thimphu City, as well as, the City Center.
In the long run, if implemented, the project will increase livability of Thimphu city from the transportation perspective. This will be achieved by developing a Priority Bus Service along one of the key transportation corridors in Thimphu which connects the various neighborhoods of the city and by decongesting the city center (through the pedestrianization of a main city boulevard)."

You can contact the Inspection Panel or submit a complaint by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
