Abstract

The Highway Project consists of road construction, feasibility studies, detailed engineering, a highway maintenance study and the purchase of maintenance equipment. The existing road from Chonju to Masan is narrow, poorly aligned, badly drained, and has a rough gravel surface, except for short paved sections near Sunchon and Masan. The Masan-Pusan section is paved, but is narrow and becoming increasingly congested. The new highway will be built on a new alignment and will have a two-lane asphaltic concrete pavement. It will be 56 km shorter than the existing road. The Masan-Pusan alignment was chosen to connect with an intra-urban link in Pusan to be financed and built by the Government. Construction supervision will be carried out by consultants acceptable to the Bank.
