    Description

    Part financing of the bridge construction over the Wisla (Vistula) river in Polaniec. The project will be allocated under the framework loan for the Region of Swietokrzyskie. The project is co-financed by the Region of Podkarpackie and supported by EC.

    Objectives

    Implementation of the project will enhance transport accessibility of the Swietokrzyskie and Podkarpackie provinces, improving the internal coherence of the region, increasing its economic attractiveness and revitalizing entrepreneurship. The project is located in a Convergence region and is therefore eligible under Article 309(a) "projects for developing less-developed regions" of the EC treaty. The project is expected to benefit from Cohesion Fund finance. The consistency of the project with the Bank policy for lending to the transport sector (Decision CA/452/11) depends on its economic profitability and will be confirmed during appraisal.
