On April 5, 2023, Egis signed a contract for the “Support to the Pre-feasibility study for a new EU standard-gauge railway corridor connecting Poland, Ukraine, Romania, and Moldova”.
This crucial project will contribute to the integration of Ukraine and Moldova in the European transport area, by improving connectivity with the EU and increasing the capacity of the new export corridors. Besides, it will increase the resilience of the transport system and the logistic chains by reducing their vulnerability to exceptional events, such as the current blockade of Ukrainian ports following Russia's invasion of Ukraine.
Within the project framework, Egis team will work with JASPERS (Joint Assistance in Supporting Projects in European Regions), a partnership between the European Commission and the EIB. The main task of the Egis is to support JASPERS in finalizing the pre-feasibility study and complementing the sections already developed by JASPERS experts.
The leading company is Egis in Poland, while the European Investment Bank is the donor and the client of the project. Egis in Ukraine experts will also take part in this important project.
