The Asian Development Bank (ADB) has approved a loan to the tune of USD 200 million to upgrade rural roads to all-weather standards in 34 districts of Maharashtra.

The move will boost links between local residents, productive agricultural land, and economic centres across the state.  

The road designs will incorporate climate resilient features such as improved drainage and higher surface elevations, and stronger embankments, and safety features such as signage, guard posts, and speed breakers.

Also, environment-friendly sealing options such as asphalt blended with plastic waste will be piloted on selected road segments.

The project will also work with the rural infrastructure agency, the Maharashtra Rural Road Development Association (MRRDA), to develop road safety, road asset management, contract management, and climate resilient design.

Accompanying the loan is a technical assistance grant of USD one million to support MRRDA to improve its management performance in these areas.

The total cost of the project is worth USD 296 million, of which the government will provide USD 96 million. The project is expected to be completed by the end of September 2024.
