With the announcement of the signed contract with the Ministry of Territorial Administration and Infrastructure of the Republic of Armenia for the providing supervision services for the construction of the "North-South Road Corridor Investment Project," Section 4 - Kajaran-Agarak road, spanning 32 kilometers to the entrance of the planned Agarak-Vardanidzor-Kajaran tunnel, we bring you more information about the North-South Road Corridor Investment Project.


The NSRCIP is a major undertaking that will have a significant impact on the Armenian economy and society. The North-South Road Corridor connects China, India and Central Asia first of all to Iran, then to Georgia, the Russian Federation and Europe. This project is an important part of the TRACECA Road Corridor development and the Silk Road projects. Its implementation becomes more reasonable and justified by the fact that the latter almost repeats the route of the Silk Road, which as such existed up to the 2nd century BC, when the trade gradually expanded between the Roman and the Chinese (during the Han dynasty) empires.

The NSRCIP aims at the reconstruction of a 560km long highway of the 2nd and 3rd category with 60 km/h speed in average from the Georgian border - Bavra to the Iranian border - Agarak reaching it through 470km, 1st category highway with the speed of 100-110km/h as a result of which the crossing of the mentioned section shall be reduced from the current 9-9.5 hours to 4.5 hours also ensuring the goal of becoming a freight transit and transport movement route from the East to the West and from the North to the South. The current highway shall be reduced by about 90km.

The NSRCIP is carried out in several stages, where IGH provides supervision services for the construction of Tranche 4.  Kajaran-Agarak 32 km long highway that leads to the entrance of the planned Agarak-Vardanidzor-Kajaran tunnel.


The Project implementation will result in the following outcomes:

The project aims to achieve the following objectives:

The main goals include improving safety and comfort, reducing time and financial costs, and integrating necessary telecommunication and other infrastructures.

We are delighted to announce that Vodovod i kanalizacija Rijeka, have informed us that agglomeration construction works will commence on Straža Street, from house number 52 to number 65, starting November 8, 2023., as part of the EU project 'Improvement of water and sanitation infrastructure in the Rijeka agglomeration,' work group E 'Construction of drainage systems – Viškovo Expansion.

The anticipated completion deadline is by the end of December 2023, depending on weather-related challenges. KD ViK Rijeka expresses its gratitude to all its citizens for their patience and understanding, inviting them to follow the progress of the works and changes in traffic regulations for their safety and that of others involved in traffic.

The works in the Straža Street will be carried out as part of subsystem E3-0.3, involving the construction of sanitary sewerage, pump station CS 13, and water supply branches in Straža and Baretićevo Streets. The main contractor is GODINA gradbeništvo in druge storitve d.o.o., with the supervision support from our IGH experts. The service is provided by the consortium with Eptisa Adria d.o.o., FLUM-ING d.o.o., and PROJEKT d.d. Nova Gorica.

EUPAR – the Rijeka agglomeration European project envisages the construction of a new wastewater treatment plant on Delta, of a high second stage of purification, with biological processing of wastewater prior to its release into the sea and processing of sludge to the content of at least 90% of dry matter. The device will have a purification capacity for the load of the equivalent of 200,000 inhabitants.

Moreover, the project will finance the construction and reconstruction of about 217 kilometres of sewerage and 125 pumping stations, with simultaneous execution of works on approximately 100 kilometres of public water supply in two cities – Rijeka and Kastav and three municipalities – Viškovo, Čavle and Jelenje that form the territory of the Rijeka Agglomeration. Part of the sewer collection-conveyance system about 800 meters long, will be constructed in a part of the municipality of Matulji.

In the territory of the city of Rijeka, works take place in about 200 streets and will include about 82 kilometres of sewers and about 31 kilometres of the water supply system.

Troubleshooting of connection problems of those buildings, newly built and existing ones, which are below the level of the sewage collector is also envisaged. The supply of a large number (2,512) of small local internal pumping stations is planned in order to connect those units to the public drainage system.

Sections of the public water supply system will also be replaced as part of the project, which will result in the reduction of losses in the drinking water supply system by about 8%. The losses are today within the acceptable limits and are significantly below the level of the average actual losses in water supply systems in Croatia. This is a strategic investment project of the Republic of Croatia, one of the largest in the implementation of water utility directives in the Republic of Croatia.

The project goals are:

Owing to the investments included by this project in water and utility structures European standards will be achieved in municipal wastewater management and protection of receiving surface water and the aquatic environment in accordance with the Urban Waste Water Treatment Directive (91/271 / EEC), which is one of the most expensive legal acts of the European Union in terms of implementation. Following this, good quality of drinking water is ensured in accordance with the Directive on the quality of water intended for human consumption (98/83 / EC) positively impacting the status of water bodies and ensuring the recipient’s good status in accordance with the requirements of the Water Framework Directive (2000/60/EC) and the Bathing Water Quality Directive (2006/7/EC).

Project beneficiary: Utility company KD Vodovod i Kanalizacija d.o.o. Rijeka

Project budget:

On part of the Republic of Croatia, the Ministry of Environmental Protection and Energy and Hrvatske vode each provide 24,575,451.99 EUR. The remaining 17,876,102.73 EUR of national funds is provided by the company Vodovod i Kanalizacija d.o.o. through a long-term financial loan.
