The Project Management Division (PMD) was established in February 2015 to solely responsible for project implementation of both Pilot Project for Climate Resilience (PPCR) and Enhanced Road Access Projects (ERAP).
The PMD is responsible in undertaking full project management of all projects through to successful conclusions in conjunction with the Project Management Unit (PMU) for PPCR and ERAP.
Several components of both PPCR and ERAP are already at various stages of implementation and the PMD has assumed responsibility for these projects from the Programming and Procurement Division (PPD). The PMD office is located within the LTA offices at Vaitele and has formed an integral part of the Authority.
Project 1 - Pilot Project for Climate Resilience (PPCR) - Climate Resilience of the West Coast Road (CRWCR)
The Government of Samoa has received a Grant from the World Bank to improve climate resilience and to enhance local capacity to develop a more climate resilient road network. This support will be provided through the Pilot Project for Climate Resilience (PPCR).
Component 1 - Improving Climate Resilience of the WCR (CRWCR).
Strengthen the climate resilience of the economically critical WCR through works to improve and raise the road pavement between Vailoa Junction in Apia and Faleolo International Airport (approximately 26 km), sealing shoulders, and improving longitudinal and cross drainage.
Component 2: Vulnerability Assessment of the Samoa Road Network. Consultancy assignment to assess the climate change vulnerability of the main road network on the two principal islands of Upolu and Savai’i, and prepare a climate resilience/adaptation strategy for the road network.
