The project consists of the reconstruction and upgrading of the single carriageway roads in the E22 corridor between Ludza to Terehova, which link up to the Russian border.
The project will improve traffic conditions, reduce travel time and improve road safety on the E22 road corridor, which is part of the TEN-T and the main East-West road connection linking Riga with Russia.
The project falls under Annex II of the EIA Directive 85/337/EEC as amended (codified by Directive 2011/92/EU of 13 December 2011). Hence the competent authority decides on the requirement of a full EIA. Compliance with the SEA and EIA Directives, the Habitats Directive (92/43/EEC) and Birds Directives (79/409/EEC) and NATURA 2000 will be verified duing appraisal.
The contracting authority is required to comply with regulations governing the procurement of publicly financed projects in the EU and national public procurement legislation. The construction works and associated supervision are being procured by the promoter in accordance with Directive 2004/18/EC through restricted tender after publication in the OJEU. Details will be examined during appraisal.
Before financing approval by the Board of Directors, and before loan signature, projects are under appraisal and negotiation. The data provided on this page is therefore indicative and cannot be considered to represent official EIB policy (see also the Explanatory notes).
