Purpose of the Environmental and Social Impact Assessments

The project is to design, build, finance, operate and maintain three sections of the 2x2 lane R1 expressway between Nitra and Tekovske Nemce, as well as the Banska Bystrica Northern Bypass, for a total length of 51.6 km in the Slovak Republic under a 30 year availability fee-based concession. This concession is pursuant to a concession contract between the Ministry of Transport, Post and Telecommunications of the Slovak Republic and the concessionaire, Granvia Consortium, a joint stock company incorporated under the laws of Slovak Republic that was set up by Vinci Concessions S.A. and ABN Amro Highway B.V. (currently 100% owned by Vinci Concessions SA).

EBRD is considering providing a senior loan of up to EUR 250 million, which would form part of a Senior Term Loan Facility of EUR 1,050 million to finance the construction of R1 Motorway and cover transaction costs.

This is the first concession contract awarded for a PPP structure for motorway projects in Slovakia. The motorway would be constructed using private financing and utilising private efficiencies; and the concessionaire would introduce new operational, managerial and commercial practices.

There is a project summary document available for this project.
