This project supported Timor Leste to improve and upgrade priority national roads and to establish a road maintenance program in the border region with Indonesia, located at Mota Ain.
The Government clear strategy was to develop the main road links within the border area in order to provide effective transportation routes to facilitate the movement of goods to and from Indonesia. The two routes in particular were the Dili-Tibar-Maliana (inland road) and Dili-Tibar-Mota Ain (coastal road).
The project required the SMEC to investigate, design and supervise a combination of both road rehabilitation and maintenance based civil works.
