    Description

    The project consists of the construction and upgrading of the existing E-60 road between Chumateleti and Khevi to 2 x 2 dual carriageway standard.

The total length of the left branch of the road is approximately 11.6km long. The works on the right branch start at the north-western portal of the existing Rikoti Tunnel and run for approximately 8.6km to Khevi.

    Environmental aspects

    If located in the EU, the project would be subject to the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Directive (2014/52/EU amending EIA Directive 2011/92/EU) and the Birds and Habitats Directives (2009/147/EC and 92/43/EEC respectively). There are no natural 2000 habitats. No protected areas will be impacted. According to the Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) submitted by the Promoter, construction and operation of the East West Highway within Chumateleti-Khevi section will not have impact on the protected areas, as the closest national park of Borjomi-Kharagauli is approximately 6kms from the road corridor.

In particular clause 3.4.5 of EIB Guide to Procurement will be applicable as this project is co-financed with World Bank.
