Provincial Road Improvement and Maintenance (PRIM): program design document
Summary of publication
This document proposes the use of Australia Indonesia Infrastructure Grant (AIIG) facility draw-downs to incentivise improved maintenance and associated good governance of provincial roads under a Provincial Road Improvement and Maintenance (PRIM) program. This would be piloted in Nusa Tenggara Barat (NTB).
Working through existing government procedures, PRIM would improve the way provincial governments manage and maintain their networks on a sustainable basis, raise network quality, increase provincial budgeting for road maintenance and encourage public scrutiny of the effectiveness of maintenance planning and delivery.
AIIG grants would be provided if maintenance works were verified as having been planned and carried out using agreed procedures and to agreed standards. The province would pre-finance its works program, and would receive AIIG grant contributions on successful compliance with program conditions.
