PMCG, under a consortium led by Antea Netherland B.V., is working on a feasibility study and detailed design of the upgrading of the Rustavi – Red Bridge and Rustavi – Sadakhlo Roads.
The roads have crucial importance, as they will be part of the East-West Highway project, which is a strategic project designed to transform Georgia into a transport and logistics hub for trade between Central Asia and the Far East, and Turkey and Europe. However, before starting the building process, the Government of Georgia through the Roads Department of Georgia requires a feasibility study and detailed design to be carried out.
In the first phase, PMCG’s team will analyze the environmental impact of the project, taking into account positive and adverse effects on the environment, recommending appropriate solutions to minimize undesirable effects, and preparing the resettlement policy framework.
During the second phase, the team will develop a detailed Resettlement Action Plan (RAP) based on the Resettlement Operation Policy of the World Bank (OP/BP 4.12), the Resettlement Policy Framework (RPF) prepared in the first phase and relevant national legislation and procedures specified by these documents.
