WB has has so far provided $ 20 million for road maintenance project

The World Bank announced that over $ 20 million has been given so far for the performance-based road maintenance project, while the total project is supported by this institution at $ 80 million. In the last revision of the project, the Bank did not give much detail but warned that a full review of results would be delivered in mid-June this year. In its assessment, the BB considers the project to be moderately satisfactory, while mid-term review of the progress of the project in April will produce updated results for detailed indicators that include each component. “Maintenance and rehabilitating works have been implemented during the construction period at the beginning of 2019 and the results in the terms of security and connectivity in the road network are confirming the progress of the project”, says WB document. The road maintenance performance project started in 2015 with the approval of a World Bank loan. The project was supposed to envisage the maintenance of 1334 kilometers of roads throughout the country over a period of five years under four contracts but it faced numerous delays due to the fact that the companies selected for their implementation had disputes about the reflection of the road situation which in some cases was inconsistent with the real situation. The project started its implementation in 2018 end in 2021.
