Kyrgyz Republic - Restructuring of the Bishkek and Osh Urban Infrastructure Project (English)

The objective of the Bishkek and Osh Urban Infrastructure Project (BOUIP) for Kyrgyz Republic is to improve the living conditions in selected semi-informal settlements in Bishkek and Osh by increasing the availability of basic infrastructure to the residents of these areas. The project changes consist in: (i) a reduction in the volume of works implemented under the Bishkek road upgrading sub-component due to higher than expected cost of the investment program; and (ii) modifications in the financing and disbursement arrangements for the same sub-component in response to technical modifications requested by the Bishkek Municipality. The total length of roads to be upgraded will be shortened from originally about 34 km to about 21 km and the number of Bishkek novostroiki settlements benefiting from road upgrading works under the Bishkek infrastructure sub-component will be reduced from originally eleven to seven resulting in a corresponding adjustment of performance indicators. The additional financing provided by the Bishkek Municipality will result in an increase of the local government contribution to BOUIP from previously US$1.1 million to US$2.5 million. As a result, the overall cost of the BOUIP would rise from US$14.35 million equivalent to US$15.75. The amount of International Development Association (IDA) grant financing and the contribution from the Kyrgyz Government will remain unchanged, however.
