EBRD gets loan application for motorway

Quote:
13.12.2011 10:35:00 | Author/Source PressCut

The head of EBRD’s local office in BH has confirmed receiving a loan application from Republika Srpska in connection with the construction of the Banja Luka – Doboj Motorway.

He expects an answer would be known in Q1 2012, following an assessment by the bank’s management. Next year, the EBRD is planning to ensure EUR 200 million for projects in BH, and its focus will be on infrastructure, energy and the private sector. A lot of attention will be given to road building and water supply and sewage systems.

Also, the bank is willing to financially support the privatization of large government companies, and efficient and speedy implementation of its projects will be among key interests in the following period.

Tender for motorway by end of January

29.12.2011 15:32:00 | Author/Source PressCut

Quote:
A public call for tenders to build the Banja Luka – Doboj Motorway (the section from Prnjavor to Doboj) will probably be announced in late January, Republika Srpska transport minister N. Cubrilovic said yesterday after another meeting with representatives of the EBRD about financing for the project.

Final negotiations will be held in February. The bank has offered standard terms and 2.7 per cent interest rate for a loan of EUR 150 million. Next year, negotiations will start with the EIB about a loan for the second leg (Prnjavor – Banja Luka).

Bosnia’s Serb Republic To Start Tendering for Banja Luka-Doboj Road Project in Q1

Quote:
20.2.2012 11:16:00 | Author/Source www.seenews.com

Bosnia’s Serb Republic plans to start tendering in the first quarter of this year for works and services for a section of the Banja Luka- Doboj motorway in a project for which it is seeking a loan from the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), the international lender said.

The proposed project has a total estimated value of 180 million euro ($236.86 million) and will require the procurement of construction works for a 36.6 kilometer new motorway section and all related local roads totalling 22.6 kilometers as well as consulting services for works supervision, the EBRD said in a statement posted on its website on Saturday.

Signing a loan agreement 29th March

Contract a loan of 150 million euros for the construction of the highway Banja Luka - Doboj, Doboj to the Prnjavor, the Serbian Republic and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development / EBRD / will be signed on 29 March in Banja Luka, confirmed Srni Minister of Transport and Communications Serbian Nedeljko Cubrilovic. He said that the conditions are standard and include an interest rate based on six-month Euribor plus one, with a grace period at the time of construction and repayment period 15 years.

Čubrilović added that the representatives of EBRD reached complete agreement on the Guarantee Agreement, the Loan Agreement and the support, but that misunderstandings have arisen regarding the interpretation of the guidelines the bank from its consultant, and on the conditions of the tender.

"We expect that during the day or tomorrow we get a proposal consultant, who will find the best solution for obtaining the tender," said Cubrilovic.

In negotiations with the EBRD in London, which ended today, attended by the Serbian Finance Minister Zoran Tegeltija, dikrektor Public Enterprise "Serbian Republic of Highways" Dusan Topic and representatives of Ministry of finance.

Serbian Government in December last year decided that the construction of the highway from Prnjavor to Doboj, 36 kilometers long, built with the help of loans from the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development.

Bosnia region invites bids in $241 mln highway tender

Quote:
Feb 28 (Reuters) - Bosnia's Serb Republic on Tuesday invited bidders to express interest in a tender for the construction of a 36-kilometre-long highway section in the north of the Balkan country at an estimated cost of 180 million euros ($241.11 million).

The section, linking the towns of Prnjavor and Doboj, will be part of a 76 km motorway from the Serb Republic main city of Banja Luka to Doboj.

The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) has agreed to extend a 150 million euro loan for the project to the region's Public Motorways Company which will secure the remaining funds, Prime Minister Aleksandar Dzombic said.

He said that potential bidders for the project could apply until April 28 and that the tendering procedure would be carried out in line with the EBRD standards.

"We hope that conditions will be in place to start the construction in late May," Dzombic told reporters, adding that completion of works was expected in three years.

The Serb Republic, one of Bosnia's two autonomous regions, in 2010 scrapped a 2.9 billion euro deal with Strabag after the Austrian builder failed to find funding to build a 430 km road network. The EBRD at the time declined to back the project, citing lack of transparency.

Meanwhile, it looks like EIB (European Investment Bank)) will provide an additional 200 million euro loan to Republika Srpska for construction of Banja Luka-Prnjavor section of motorway, meaning entire 76km of Banja Luka-Doboj motorway could be completed within 3-4 years

I don't see this being a viable route, it seems to be politically motivated.

Pretty much everything in life is politically-motivated

Honestly, while I don't know what's current AADT along this route, I think the new motorway will one day justify the planned spending - as its the best possible connection not only to Doboj, Bosnia-Herzegovina's main railway junction, but also to the north-south Corridor Vc - to the south you have industrial town of Zenica, capital Sarajevo, Mostar and Croatia's port of Ploce while to the north - it links up with Croatia's A3 motorway (Belgrade & Zagreb) as well as Osijek & Hungary/Budapest.

Banja Luka-Doboj motorway is also the first stretch of an eventual direct motorway link-up with Belgrade, via cities of Brcko, Bijeljina & Sabac.

Why is it politically motivated? Is it because the motorway is heading towards Serbia?

What I mean is that you have an existing underused motorway paralleling this proposed one only some 50 km's north of it. It would be a waste of tax payers money. And as Crazy alluded to the AADT is to low to support a new motorway, a wide two lane highway or 'brzi put' would suffice. Since there is already a direct motorway link to Serbia via Croatia (minus a small un-built section) it would make more sense to build this motorway to Zenica and Sarajevo.

@ YU-AMC - not because it would be heading toward Serbia, but because it is political opportunism, pandering, and unnecessary. That money should be used for so many more important things that could improve the living standards of its citizens. Remember the proposed airport at Trebinje, same story. Now the government of RS will spend millions on studies and consultant fees to political cronies.

According to available data from Wikipedia, planned motorway/expressway will connect five most populated places (having more than 600 k) in Srpska

- Prijedor (105 k)
- Banja Luka (250 k)
- Doboj (80 k)
- Brčko (82 k)
- Bijeljina (115 k)


Most populated places in Croatia along Belgrade - Zagreb motorway (100 - 150 k) are

- Kutina (23 k)
- Novska (14 k)
- Nova Gradiška (14 k)
- Slavonski Brod (60 k)
- Županja (12 k)

About 5.000 - 6.000 in rural areas, up to 8.000 near towns and an incidental 10.000 spot.

These data are for Bosnian cities with surroundings (opcine) with average area of 800 km2 (what is size of 2 Beograds). Bijeljina 100k +? Yeah right

Brcko District is neither part of the Federation nor of the entity Republika Srpska (RS) and has a single political structure, despite containing large numbers of each of the three ethnic groups. Serbs often still use maps that ignore the existence of Brcko District and show Brcko city and the former corridor as parts of RS.

This map shows that motorway Banja Luka - Doboj is justified, because 8000 AADT on the existing road through mountainous terrain is a little bit too much (in Croatia A9 also has low AADT /cca 7000/, but still it was built because it's very important).

But there should also be a motorway connecting Banja Luka and Zenica. This route could become important because there's A11 motorway planned in Croatia (Zagreb-Sisak-Kostajnica), which is partly built, so it could continue through BIH connecting couple of big cities (Prijedor-Banja Luka-Jajce-Travnik-Zenica-Sarajevo) and shortening the route between Zagreb and Sarajevo from ~370 km to ~300 km If so, there would be a modern road between Banja Luka and Sarajevo, better than today's M16+M5 and shorter than future BL-Doboj motorway
