SARAJEVO (Bosnia and Herzegovina), September 13 (SeeNews) – Bosnia’s Muslim-Croat Federation government said on Thursday it would award Slovenian builder SCT a 56.7 million euro ($78.8 million) contract for the construction of a portion of the bypass around the Bosnian capital Sarajevo.
The contract, envisaging the construction of a 5.5-kilometre stretch from Josanica to Butila, will be signed on Friday in Sarajevo, the Federation government said in a statement.
The Muslim-Croat Federation is one of the two autonomous parts that form war-divided Bosnia. The other is the Serb Republic.
The Federation government will sign another 1.9 million euro contract for the supervision of works with a joint venture consisting of Slovenian company DDC, domestic Sarajevo-based firm Divel and the Sarajevo Office for Transport, the statement said.
The Sarajevo bypass has a total length of 19.3 kilometres, including 2.5 kilometres of ramps, and is part of the European Union-defined corridor Vc that passes through Bosnia from north to south and connects the Hungarian capital Budapest with the Croatian Adriatic port of Ploce.
The project, whose total value is 235 million euro, is financed by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), the European Investment Bank and the OPEC Fund.
It also includes the construction of a 29-kilometre motorway between the Serb Republic administrative centre Banja Luka and the Gradiska border crossing with Croatia to the north as well as a bridge over the Sava River.
