back  |  print
General Information
 
Title of the project:
Construction of Panemune and Sovetsk by-pass with a bridge over Neman River
 
Programme:
Lithuania-Poland-Russia Cross Border Co-operation Programme 2007-2013 under European Neighbourhood and Partnership Instrument
 
Subject of the project:
Infrastructure (roads, buildings, transport)
 
Priority:
1. Contributing to solving common problems and challenges
 
Measure:
1.2. Accessibility improvement
 
Lead Partner (Beneficiary):
Lithuanian Road Administration under the Ministry of Transport and Communications (Lithuania)
 
Partner:
State Governmental agency of the Kaliningrad region "Road Department of the Kaliningrad region" (Russia)
 
Total budget:
27,386,690.00 EUR (94,560,763.23 Lt)
 
Programme contribution:
10,000,000.00 EUR (34,528,000.00 Lt)
 
Duration:
24 months (January 2013 – December 2014)
 
According to the Project, the Panemunė by-pass will be built on the territory of Pagėgiai municipality of Tauragė region of the Republic of Lithuania and will be connected with a new bridge over Neman River and Sovetsk by-pass to be constructed by the Partner from the Russian Federation. The Panemunė by-pass will be part of road A12 (E77) Riga–Šiauliai–Tauragė–Kaliningrad and of IA transport corridor (VIA HANSEATICA), which is an important connection of the European Union road network.
The overall objective of the Project is to contribute to the improvement of traffic conditions for transit and long distance transport between the Lithuanian Republic and Kaliningrad Region of the Russian Federation on IA transport corridor, as well as to reducing vehicles-related problems (traffic jams, noise, air pollution) faced by the inhabitants of Panemunė settlement (Lithuania) and Sovetsk town (Russia).
The Financial Project analysis shows that although the project does not generate direct income, it provides social and economic benefits to society.The estimated internal rate of return of the Project (evaluating Panemunė bypass to be constructed on the territory of Lithuania and Sovetsk bypass with a bridge over Neman River to be constructed on the territory of the Russian Federation) is 41.88%.
When the implementation of the Project is finished and transport traffic is diverted to a by-pass, the following benefits will be achieved:
  • Reduced negative environmental impact
  • Reduced accident rate
  • Improved traffic and border crossing conditions
  • Reduced vehicle operating costs.
After implementation of the project the following results will be achieved:
  • Construction of a road section (length – 4 km).
  • Construction of the “fly-over” (length – 0.463 km) over the old water course of river Neman.
  • Construction of the bridgehead (length – 0.085 km) providing connection with the new bridge, which should be built over Neman River by the Russian Federation.
