Promoter – Financial Intermediary
Ministry of Transport and Communication of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina
The project concerns the construction of two motorway sections on Corridor Vc :
- Vlakovo - Tarcin, South of Sarajevo, in a length of 19 km
- Svilaj - Odzak, in a length of 9 km, at the Northern border with Croatia, including a bridge across the Sava river, the border between BiH and Croatia
The project will significantly increase accessibility and reduce travel times, thereby contributing to a balanced economic development of the regions concerned. Current average speeds on existing road are estimated at some 50 km/h and these should rise to 120 km/h with the new infrastructure. Commuting among main cities and towns along the corridor will be much faster and more comfortable.
Proposed EIB finance (Approximate amount)
Up to EUR 166 million
Total cost (Approximate amount)
About EUR 340 million
This type of project (construction of a motorway) falls under Annex I of EU Directive 85/337/EEC as amended by Directive 97/11/EC and thus requires a full EIA.
The Bank will require the promoter to ensure that implementation of the project will be done in compliance with the Bank’s Guide to Procurement and applicable EU rules.
