Project Description

The impact of the Project is a well functioning integrated road transport system in Yunnan Province, part of the GMS. To realize this impact, the Project will help the YPCD provide efficient, safe, and environmentally sustainable road transport system by lowering the cost of transport, relieving traffic congestion, and improving access in the project area. The Project will (i) reduce traffic accidents and vehicle operating costs; (ii) improve access within Yunnan Province, and facilitate the movement of goods and people between the PRC and GMS; (iii) provide additional transport capacity to accommodate growing traffic; and (iv) provide improved access to markets and social services in a poor area.
