After careful consideration and honouring the existing commitment to the funding partners, Cabinet determined that the project was vital for promoting economic development, enhancing road safety and climate resilience, and therefore approved its implementation.

The Ministry of Infrastructure Development and Housing conducted its own diligent review of the selection process to ensure impartiality and transparency, and now wishes to announce that contracts for Lot 1 to 4 have been awarded as follows:
