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.
