The project concerns the improvement of about 360 km of single carriageway highway on the Great East Road connecting central Zambia to its eastern province, as well as to the Nacala Corridor, a regional transport corridor linking Malawi and Zambia to the deep water port of Nacala in Mozambique. The project is to be co-financed by the EC, AfDB, EIB and AFD.

The TA Grant is being used to finance consultancy services to ensure that the works on the sections of the road to be co-financed by the European Investment Bank and the European Development Fund are managed following the expected quality standards; and to improve the promoter's quality control systems across all its operations, an activity that will complement ADB supported TA on the promoter's planning and asset management systems. For this purpose, EIB signed a service contract with Luxconsult SA in July 2011 for a duration of 42 months.
