Iraq invites expressions of interest in road rehabilitation programme

31 July 2011

Project covers maintenance and rehabilitation of Iraq’s roads

Iraq’s State Commission for Roads and Bridges (SCRB) is inviting consultants to submit expressions of interest by 9 August for a contract to develop a road asset management system and prepare a five-year road rehabilitation programme.

The scope of the work also includes carrying out the detailed design for a series of priority road rehabilitation works. It will also involve an assessment of the organisation, capacity and work processes of the SCRB, including a review of its performance over the past three years.

The development of a road asset management system will cover a network of 30,000 kilometres and will assess SCRB’s road maintenance and rehabilitation practices, establishing a road database, carrying out traffic counts and selecting an appropriate road maintenance strategy.

The five-year road rehabilitation programme will use the road asset management system, once complete.

Iraq’s Construction and Housing Ministry has already received a loan from the Washington-based World Bank that will be used to help finance the Emergency Road Rehabilitation programme.

The selected consultant is scheduled to start work in November.
