Myanmar: Road Safety for Highway Development in the Greater Mekong Subregion East-West Economic Corridor

The proposed transaction technical assistance (TRTA) will support the Government of Myanmar to develop a systematic and practical approach for road safety in the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) East-West Economic Corridor Bago-Kyaikto existing national highway of about 90 kilometers (km). The TRTA also aims to help the Government to establish initial foundation for a sustainable and systematic road safety regime. The outcome of the proposed project, is more efficient and safer movement of goods and people between Bago and Kyaikto, along the GMS EWEC.
