Georgia - Second East-West Highway Improvement Project : additional financing (English)

The objectives of the Second East-West Highway Improvement Project (SEWHIP) are (i) to contribute to the gradual reduction of road transport costs and improve ease of transit and safety along the central part of Georgia's East-West corridor through upgrading a segment of the East-West Highway from Tbilisi to Rikoti; and (ii) to strengthen the capacity of government agencies particularly Road Department of the Ministry of Economic Development (RDMED) to develop and implement a traffic safety program. The additional financing will contribute to cover a financing gap which was anticipated during the preparation of SEWHIP, due to limitations on the amount of International Development Association (IDA) funding which Georgia was able to access at that time. About 40 percent of the original credit has already been disbursed; the additional financing is needed during the first quarter of CY2009 to maintain the pace of implementation and achieve seamless disbursements.
