We recently finished working on a feasibility study and detailed design to upgrade the Rustavi – Red Bridge and Rustavi – Sadakhlo roads in Georgia.
These sections are part of the East-West Highway (EWH), which is of great national and international strategic importance. The EWH project is designed to transform Georgia into a transport and logistics hub for trade, connecting Central Asia and the Far East to Turkey and Europe. As is standard procedure, before construction can begin, a feasibility study and detailed design was conducted by the Roads Department of the Government of Georgia.
In the first phase, as part of a World Bank project led by Antea Netherlands B.V, we analyzed the overall environmental and social impact of the project, taking into account any foreseen positive and adverse effects, recommending appropriate solutions to minimize undesirable effects, and preparing the resettlement policy framework.
During the second phase of the project, we developed a detailed Resettlement Action Plan (RAP) based on the Resettlement Operation Policy of the World Bank (OP/BP 4.12) and the Resettlement Policy Framework (RPF), which were prepared in the first phase, as well as the relevant national legislation and procedures specified in these documents. Moreover, we provided procurement and contract management, including preparation of contract documentation and checking the consistency of technical specifications with BoQ and FIDIC conditions.
“We highly value the cooperation with PMCG, which played a significant role in the smooth and successful implementation of the project by providing strong local management and logistical support to the project team, as well as by facilitating communication with the client and beneficiary,” said Richard Smallegange, Director International at Antea Nederland B.V.
