Package ISP/CS8: Consulting Service for Support of Vietnam National Road Maintenance Fund, Vietnam

Component A: Road Asset Management This component aims to set-up the road database framework and to develop a comprehensive road asset management system.

Component B: Road Network Maintenance

The Project will finance a road maintenance program including NH 2, NH 6, and NH 48 with diversified contract forms including: i) traditional maintenance contracts; and ii) performance- based maintenance contracts (PBC). Some performance-based maintenance contracts have already been implemented during the previous World Bank financed Road Network Improvement Project (RNIP) and those lessons will be applied here. The project will also finance completion of a PBC legal framework and compare the effectiveness of the different maintenance methods.

Component C: Road Asset Improvement

The project will finance the improvement of selected key national highways in the northern

provinces, including NH38, NH39 (Trieu Duong - Hung Ha and Vo Hoi - Diem Dien) and four bridges of over 25m on NH38B having been earlier included in the investment list under RNIP but have not yet been implemented due to a shortage of funds. Investment in these bridges will help to increase the effectiveness of routes that have been upgraded through RNIP.
