The construction of this highly important strategic road will ensure easier traffic from the Southern border of Armenia to the Georgian border and up to Black Sea ports and will allow passenger and cargo transportation in accordance with European standards. It provides Armenia with the shortest access to the seaports linked to Europe, the Russian Federation, and Turkey. The highway will also provide serious development opportunities for all communities from the North to the South of Armenia.

The Program is divided into several Tranches. The Tranches 1, 2, 3 (Yerevan to Gyumri) together with the Northern Tranche 5 (Gyumri to Bavra) represent 170 km of the total length of the NSRC as follows:

Tranche 1- Yerevan/Northern outskirt to Ashtarak; improvement of11.4 km of dual (2x2) carriageway

Tranche 2 - Ashtarak to Talin upgrading of some 41.9 km from 2-lanes to 4-lanes

The Bank requires that candidates, tenderers, contractors, suppliers or consultants participating in a award procedure or a contract under a Bank-financed project shall not have a conflict of interest.

Conflict of interest occurs when the impartial and objective exercise of the functions of the promoter, or the respect of the principles of competition, non-discrimination or equality of treatment with regard to the procurement procedure or contract, is compromised for reasons involving family, emotional life, political or national affinity, economic interest or any other shared interest.

The Bank will not accept candidates or tenderers affected by a conflict of interest in the award procedure to benefit from EIB financing in relation to the contract to be awarded under the concerned procedure. The assessment of whether or not there is a conflict of interest has to be carried out on a case by case basis, considering the actual risk of conflict based on the specific circumstances of the case at stake. The individual or entity in question should be allowed to present supporting evidence which might remove all suspicion of a conflict of interest.
