Government of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina (FBiH) and Motorways Authority FBiH (Autoceste FBiH) with assistance from IFC and its advisors Arup and DLA Piper will structure a PPP transaction for design, financing, construction, operation and maintenance of a 38km long section of Corridor 5c between Karuše and Poprikuše in FBiH.

Corridor 5c follows European route E73 from Budapest to the port of Plo?e (Croatia) via Sarajevo.

The road PPP project will follow a design, build, finance, operate, maintain and transfer (DBFOM) concession model. The total length of project is 38.6km.

Construction costs are estimated to be between €380 million and €450 million. However, these costs have been estimated on the basis of the existing preliminary design, which is currently being optimized.

The selected concessionaire will not assume traffic risk. It will get revenues based on an availability model. The concession period will be 30 years.

According to the preliminary design, the project is divided in three sub-sections with the following characteristics:

  • Section n°1: Karuše - Medakovo (KM), L= 4.0km, of which bridges and viaducts - 0.4km, tunnel - 0.3km
  • Section n°2: Medakovo - Ozimica (MO), L= 20.9km, of which bridges and viaducts - 0.9km, tunnels - 2.6km
  • Section n°3: Ozimica - Poprikuše (OP), L= 13.6km, of which bridges and viaducts - 2.3km, tunnels - 6.4km
