Project description

A sovereign-guaranteed loan of up to EUR 70 million to the Republika Srpska Motorways (RSM). The loan will be used to finance the construction of a 6.1 km motorway section between Interchange Rudanka (Kostajnica) to Interchange Johovac (Tovira), plus around 1 km of a two lane road connection to the existing trunk road, including a crossing of the River Bosna. This would be the first 6 km out of total 46.6 km of Corridor Vc that needs to be constructed within Republika Srpska (RS) territory. This section is part of the international Corridor Vc and will be built to full motorway standards with dual carriageway.

Corridor Vc is part of the Western Balkans Core Network and has been established as an indicative extension of the Trans-European Transport Networks (TEN-T). Corridor Vc is the key motorway which connects BiH to EU markets in the north and the Port of Ploce on the Adriatic coast in Croatia in the south.

The Project will facilitate BiH’s internal and regional integration by improving its key transport infrastructure. The Project will assist the company to improve its sound business practices by obtaining certification from the Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply (CIPS) and obtaining Quality Management System ISO 9001.
