Brazil - Upgrading and Greening the Rio de Janeiro Urban Rail System Project : restructuring (English)

The Upgrading and Greening the Rio De Janeiro Urban Rail System Project for Brazil will improve the level of service provided to suburban rail transport users in the RJMR in a safe and cost efficient manner; b) to place the suburban rail transport system on a lower carbon growth path; and c) to improve the transport management and policy framework in the Borrower’s territory and in the Rio de Janeiro Metropolitan Region. The proposed restructuring concerns the Additional Financing and seeks to create a new category of expenditure and to reallocate proceeds between categories for Loan No. 8117-BR. The Project and related Loan Agreement will be modified as follows: 1) introduce new category of expenditure “Category 3 – Civil Works”, to allow for financing the renovation and modernization of the building that houses the State Secretariat of Transport (SETRANS); 2) increase proceeds under “Category 1 – Goods and non-consultancy services (including warehousing of the trains) for parts A.1 and A.2 of the Project” to accommodate price adjustments from existing contracts and allow for the procurement of additional trains and the implementation of an urban transport information system; and 3) decrease proceeds under “Category 2 – Consultants' services for Parts B of the Project”, reflecting a decrease in the scope of the Institutional and Policy Development Component to be consistent with the client’s priorities and implementation capacity.
