DescriptionThe objectives of the proposed program are to create and foster an efficient multi modal and poverty oriented urban transport system, to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and local and air and noise pollution, and to enhance the legal and institutional framework that ensure the sustainability of implemented measures. To achieve the aforementioned objectives, the project will focus on creating behavioral changes in transport and mobility patterns of transport users by facilitating intermodal transport use and improving the attractiveness of public transport and non motorized transport through construction of separated rapid bus corridors, safe bicycle routes and better pedestrian facilities. While the WB project will cover the more investment intensive parts (bus infrastructure), GEF will complement these investments by covering less investment intensive parts, whose impact on GHG emissions per dollar spent is expected to be most significant. These components include bikeways facilities, information campaigns on the use of bicycles, incentives to convince bus owners into scrapping their old and polluting present vehicles, training for the local institutions involved in environmental issues, etc. The project would have the following components: 1. Integrated strategic urban, land-use and transport planning 2. Construction of segregated busways, bikeways and incentives for efficient public transport units 3. Air/noise pollution monitoring and control (not GEF component) 4. Institutional strengthening 5. Management, monitoring, and evaluation
Implementation StatusProject implementation is progressing well. Under the non-motorized transport component, works for the rehabilitation and extension of the bikeway network in Lima and Callao have started, as well as the various activities planned under the promotion sub-component. The scheme to rationalize public transport supply is still pending of a final proposal from Protransporte that will be formulated according to the conclusions of the financial study of the concessions. Said scheme is likely to be scaled down, which will free resources for additional small scale sustainable transport projects in other cities such as Cusco and Iquitos.
