Purpose of the Environmental and Social Impact Assessments

  • The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (“EBRD”, the “Bank”) is considering providing a sovereign-guaranteed loan of up to EUR 165 million to the Macedonian Public Enterprise for State Roads (“PESR”) to finance the construction of four national road sections in Macedonia.
  • The Loan will be provided in two tranches, with each tranche financing two road sections: Tranche 1: Reconstruction and widening of the section Stip – Kochani of national road A3 (approx. 27km) and construction of the section Raec - Drenovo of national road A1 (approx. 10km). Tranche 2: Construction of the section Trebenista - Struga of national road A2 (approx. 8km) and of the section Ohrid - Pestani of national road A3 (12km). The improvement of the national road network is a priority for the Government to promote regional economic growth.
  • The Raec-Drenovo section in Tranche 1 and the Ohrid-Pestani section to be financed from Tranche 2 are expected to be in the Environmental and Social Impact category “A”. The environmental assessment of the Tranche 2 sections will be completed prior to the commitment of Tranche 2, including any required public disclosure and consultation.
  • The Project will include a number of institutional strengthening measures, including efforts to promote road safety.
