The project will help reduce transportation costs, increase traffic speeds, reduce traffic accidents and network vulnerability to climate change impacts. The resources will be administered by the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure (MTI) and the Road Maintenance Fund (FOMAV) of Nicaragua, will also help stimulate economic activity and welfare of Nicaraguans.

The competitiveness, efficiency and effectiveness of industry, agriculture and commerce depends on the Nicaraguan transport system. Currently about 300,000 vehicles circulate on national roads mobilizing more than 10 million tons, of which more than 25 percent is foreign trade cargo. Road transport is indispensable for the integration of the productive regions to the national economy and the main link between productive sectors and export markets. Therefore, the project will benefit the internal integration of the country and other Central American countries.

The loan will focus on infrastructure and productive ways to improve paving, structural reinforcements, drainage, construction of bridges and road signs. FOMAV finance periodic maintenance to ensure sustainability of investments.
