The European Bank of Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) is considering providing a loan to Montenegro for the rehabilitation and upgrade of the Danilovgrad-Podgorica road section (approx. 15km) that is part of the overall 51km ‘Montenegro Main Roads Reconstruction Project’. The whole project is divided into three main sections as follows:
Section 1: Rehabilitation of the Rozaje-Spiljani road section (approx. 20km);
Section 2: Rehabilitation and upgrade of the Tivat-Jaz road section (approx. 16km); and
Section 3: Rehabilitation and upgrade of the Danilovgrad-Podgorica road section (approx. 15km).
The proposed Danilovgrad-Podgorica road section includes the reconstruction and widening of the existing road from 2 to 4 lanes, the reconstruction of river crossings and upgrading of intersections as well as financing of supervising engineers, implementation assistance to the Project Implementation Unit (PIU) and institutional components. The Project Implementation Unit under the Transport Administration of Montenegro will implement the Project.
As well as the EBRD, the other road sections will potentially be financed by other International Financial Institutions.
There is a Project Summary Document available for this project.
Please note: Section 1 has already been Board approved on 1 November 2017 and signed on 7 December 2017.
This ESIA disclosure is dealing with the currently uncommitted Cat A road section Danilovgrad-Podgorica, and the Board discussion for this part of the Project is expected on 27 November 2019.
