This project sought to relieve growing traffic congestion on Guadalcanal, the largest of the Soloman Islands, by rehabilitating and expanding an 18-km stretch of highway that passes through Honiara, the capital city. Civil works included asphalt surfacing and concrete paving, the construction of a drainage system, and the provision of lighting, road signs and markings, and traffic lights.
