Project Description

The TA primarily included:

  1. Provincial Highway (164 km)

  2. Core Rural Access Roads (56 km)

Provincial Highways

The scope of work included:

  • Review and updating of economic feasibility and detailed engineering design of Nawabshah – Kotlalu Ranipur Road (134 km) under an earlier ADB financed TA.

  • Preparation of economic feasibility and detailed engineering design of Thatta - Sujawal Road (30 km).

Rural Access Roads

The scope of work included:

Preparation of feasibility and detailed design of following core rural access roads (56 km) in Larkana, Sanghar and Jacobabad Districts of Sindh.

  • Kamber - Drigh Road via Bhundan, Khamiso, Muhammad Brohi and Khahi, Larkana District (18 km).

  • Jamrao Head Road to Fazal Leghari Village, Sanghar District (12 km).
