Bosnia to publish tender for $4.3 bln highway

SARAJEVO, Dec 28 (Reuters) - Bosnia will publish in January an international tender for concessions to build and operate nine sections of a 6.3 billion Bosnian marka ($4.3 billion) north-to-south highway, Transportation and Communications Minister Branko Dokic said on Thursday.

Dokic said his ministry would publish the tender after the state concessions commission, set to meet on Friday, approved the project.

"We are planning to send invitations to all potential bidders right after New Year holidays," he told a news conference.

Dokic said Bosnia would offer investors concessions of at least 30 years to build and operate nine sections on the 336-kilometre-long highway. Bosnia is building one and could build up to three of the nine sections, he said.

Dokic said some 20 potential concessionaires had applied when his ministry published a tender for expressions of interest last May.

"The feasibility study showed the project could be profitable both for Bosnia and foreign investors," he said, adding that the investment return rate was estimated at 13.2 percent.

"The building of the highway would create at least 10,000 new jobs and boost production in construction firms and trade exchange as well as gross domestic product which is expected to rise by one percent to 6.5 percents," Dokic said.

Last month Bosnia's Serb Republic agreed with Austrian builder Strabag to form a joint venture for the construction of a 2 billion euro ($2.63 billion) highway network in that region.

The 1995 Dayton peace treaty, which ended the country's 1992-95 war, created a single state made up of two autonomous regions, the Serb Republic and the Muslim-Croat federation. The 336-kilometre highway would run through both regions.

First of all, its more the Bosnian-Croat federation.

Now on-topic, better infrastructure will surely help companies. But there is always the environmental downside.

I mean there is some motorway strech near Banja Luka. I see it many times on maps, even old ones, so that motorway must be old right?
It leads from Banja Luka a few kilometers to the north.

This what are they building now is real highway.

RS to Build Highways with Strabag
The Prime Minister of the Republic of Srpska (RS) Milorad Dodik signed in Vienna Tuesday a memorandum of understanding...

The Prime Minister of the Republic of Srpska (RS) Milorad Dodik signed in Vienna Tuesday a memorandum of understanding with the Austrian company Strabag on joint construction of a network of highways in the Republic of Srpska, including a part of the Corridor 5c which runs through RS, reports Bosnian daily Nezavisne Novine.

“This is the biggest post-war investment in RS, to the tune of EUR 2 billion of direct foreign investments”, said Dodik today for Nezavisne Novine, adding that Starbag will get a concession for 30 years, and perhaps even more.

It was agreed with the Austrian company that the Government and Strabag form a joint enterprise, where the Austrians would have a larger share based on invested money. Dodik said that the RS would not get into debt because of the project, but it would invest a certain amount of money which will be defined by an agreement.

The memorandum foresees the construction and a timeline for a highway on the section Gradiska - Banjaluka - Mrkonjic Grad - Sipovo – Kupres, higway Prijedor - Banjaluka - Doboj - Samac - Bijeljina – border with Serbia, and the Corridor 5c in its part which crosses RS.

The memorandum of understanding wraps up month-long negotiations with Strabag. It should be confirmed at the next Government session in two weeks, according to Nedeljko Cubrilovic, Minister of Transport and Communications.

Strabag is a leading civil engineering company in Central and Eastern Europe. With profit of EUR 10 billion and 40,000 employees, the company is a market leader in Germany, Austria, Hungary and the Czech Republic. One of their major construction works in the region is the Rijeka-Zagreb highway.

The first motorway in Yugoslavia was built in 1972 (32 km between Postojna and Vrhnika in Slovenia), and it was made by international standards. Today it's no different, you can have a look at Slovenian motorways by clicking my signature.

^ No, Zagreb - Karlovac was opened 1 day later. But if you disagree, let's move the discussion to the Slovenian or Croatian motorways thread.

Are there any official maps of what the Bosnian motorway system would look like in the future?

this map doesn't look too professional. (no offence to the maker of this map).
