It is a 20 month assignment were the consultant’s role is to assist Public Works Department.

The main outputs of this service are:

   Output 1: Rural Roads and Access Improved. This output will rehabilitate and/or upgrade 350-400 km of rural roads. The selection of the target townships and roads will be based on the CRRN and eligibility and prioritization criteria being developed with DRD. Trials for improved surface types, slope protection measures and drainage systems will also be carried out, with the aim of developing a set of improved standards for rural roads. The output also includes small-scale access infrastructure (e.g. motorcycle tracks, footbridges, river access ramps) to expand the impact of the roads to more remote communities. Such infrastructure will be identified through participatory planning with beneficiaries, and when technically simple, will be implemented through labor-based methods.

Output 2: Rural Road Management Improved. This output will focus on developing the building blocks for the national rural roads and access program. It will expand the identification of the CRRNs to the rest of the country, and develop a national core road network database, based on which a multi-year investment plan may be prepared. This output will also develop the guidelines, technical standards, and operational manual for the national rural roads and access program. Finally, it will build DRD’s capacity in project preparation and management, develop contracting arrangements for maintenance, and carry out the technical preparation for priority subprojects under the program.
