The objective of the Project is to improve transportation and physical distribution network by upgrading (rehabilitation and widening) a part of the National Road Dili to Baucau in Timor-Leste, thereby contributing to socio-economic development of Timor-Leste. This will allow Timor-Leste to bring forward the implementation of a critical infrastructure project identified the Strategic Development Plan, namely the upgrading of Highway 1. With this funding the 118 kilometers of road between Díli and Baucau will be upgraded to international standards allowing this key corridor for trade and tourism to enjoy a resilient, high quality infrastructure upgrade that will boost economic development and continue to benefit the people of Timor-Leste for many decades to come.
The Project will bring safer travel throughout a year, including dry and rainy seasons, day time and night time. Also, the Project will shorten the travel time and activate physical distribution from the capital city to other areas in the eastern part of the country. Thus, the project is expected to accelerate socio-economic development of Timor-Leste.
