Both road sections form part of the Western Corridor of the primary national road network, connecting the second biggest city of the country – San Pedro Sula – to the international border crossings with Guatemala and El Salvador.


    The project contributes to the EU's global objective of improving social and economic infrastructure, including road transport, in Latin American countries.

    Environmental aspects

    The project involves rehabilitation and upgrading works on pre-existing roads, including some limited re-alignment. If the project was located within the EU, it would fall under Annex II of the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Directive 2011/92/EU, as amended, requiring screening to determine if EIA is required. A full EIA has been carried out. As part of the Bank's due diligence of the project, compliance with the relevant EU environmental and social principles, standards and practices will be verified. The Bank shall also verify the acceptability of the project in terms of likely environmental impacts and proposed mitigation and compensation measures.


    The Bank will require the promoter to ensure that implementation of the project will be done in accordance with the Bank's Guide to Procurement.
