Transport / Urban public transport - Urban roads and traffic management

Gender Equity and Mainstreaming Effective gender mainstreaming
Description The proposed Project will address the key issue of high cost of transport across Manila and more specifically on the major transport corridor of the Epifanio de los Santos Avenue (EDSA), by reducing travel time, increasing passenger throughput; improving connectivity between different transport modes and the surroundings areas; and improving the ability of government to manage and operate the various transport systems that run along EDSA in a more efficient and effective way. The indicative loan amount of $500 million will improve all major transport modes along EDSA, Metro Rail Transport Line 3 (MRT-3), buses, and private vehicles, as well as improve pedestrian facilities.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

The traffic conditions in Manila are deteriorating, resulting in economic loses and social costs to all. The government has developed an overarching plan to improve the transport situation through both large infrastructure projects and system operations improvements. The proposed loan is directly aligned with the Manila transport plans and will augment the major infrastructure proposals through support for system management and operations improvement, notably along the main transport corridor in the city.

The congestion is getting worse, resulting in economic loss, social and gender exclusion, and deteriorating air quality and road safety. Urgent action is required to improve EDSA and reduce the cost of transport to allow continued and sustainable development of the city. In 2016, NCR accounts for 36.6% of the countries gross domestic product (GDP). Congestion on EDSA is estimated to cost PhP2.4 billion a day. The proposed Project is included in the ADB's country operations and business plan.
