Project description

The Project involves a sovereign guaranteed loan to Hrvatske Autoceste d.o.o. consisting of two loan tranches as follows:

  • Tranche A to finance the construction of a 17.5 km motorway section on Corridor Vc in Croatia between Beli Manastir and Halasica Bridge on the A5 motorway, as well as the purchase and instalment of motorway equipment (a committed tranche).
     
  • Tranche B to finance the construction of a 5 km motorway section on Corridor Vc from Beli Manastir in Croatia to the Hungarian border (an uncommitted tranche).

The environmental impact assessment procedure for the Project was first conducted in 2003 and 2004, as a part of the A5 Motorway: Hungarian Border – Beli Manastir - Osijek - Svilaj (Corridor Vc) EIA.

An updated Environmental Impact Study (EIS) was prepared in October 2016 for A5 Motorway section “Hungarian border – Beli Manastir – Osijek” to reflect the fact that Croatia became a Member State and any differences between EU and national legislation.

Given that this is an A category project, the Bank has engaged consultants which have critically reviewed the ESIA disclosure packages against the EBRD requirements for ESIA.

The project will support regional integration (“Integrated”)  and Economic Inclusion (“Inclusive”)
