Pakistan - Khyber-Pakhtoonkhwa Emergency Roads Recovery Project (English)

The objective of the Khyber-Pakhtoonkhwa Emergency Roads Recovery Project for Pakistan is to enable the population along the project corridor to benefit from year round improved access and mobility through reconstruction of priority damaged roads and bridges in the conflict hit areas. The project aims to rehabilitate priority corridors or segments of the main roads in the swat district of the province of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (KP) with a view to improve access and mobility. This project paper seeks the approval of the Regional Vice President (RVP) to provide a grant under the Multi Donor Trust Fund (MDTF) in an amount of US$ 8.0 million to the project. The grant will help respond to the post-conflict situation by carrying out emergency rebuilding of priority roads infrastructure damaged during the conflict in the Province of (KP). The project focuses on early recovery priorities agreed between the Government of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (GoKP) authorities and the World Bank as the administrator of the MDTF. The project consists of two components. The first component is infrastructure rebuilding involving reconstruction/improvement of strategic roads and bridges; and the second component is project management providing support for contract administration/construction supervision and safeguards related consultant services and incremental operating costs. The expected outcome is improved traffic flow resulting in reduced vehicle operating costs and travel time for beneficiaries using the road.
