Project Description

The project covers the construction of the midsection, approximately 30 km, of SEETO Route 6B in Kosovo, which connects Pristina to Podgorica via SEETO Route 4.

The WBIF has funded the preparation of the pre-feasibility study and renewed its assistance in 2016 with a €1.9 million grant that will support the final stage of preparation up to and including the award of works contracts and approval of construction designs for the now preferred off-line route of the road.

The implementation of the project will contribute to economic growth and social development, facilitate trade and economic links with neighbouring countries and the EU member states, as well as between main cities in Kosovo. It will also bring a significant improvement in the local environment and safety of the communities along the existing road who are currently impacted by significant severance, noise, vibration, and local air pollution as well as traffic hazards.
