Bihar highways to be upgraded at $300 mn ADB loan

To upgrade 254 kilometres of highways, which are in a very bad condition in northern and southern Bihar, the Union government has signed an agreement with the Asian Development Bank (ADB) for $300 million additional loan. The additional financing for the ongoing Bihar State Highways-II Project will widen the sections of existing four highways to two lanes, build and maintain bridges and repair the pavements.

The project will improve access to the state highway network for the beneficiaries living in remote villages. This project will also use a $1 million grant to prepare a 20-year road master plan for Bihar state. It will help the national and state governments achieve their vision of improving the lives of people by providing an efficient transport system.
