he motorway section A2 Gostivar - Kichevo (42 km) is part of the SEETO and TEN-T Core Network extension into the Western Balkans connecting the Black Sea with the Adriatic Sea. This section is the main road route in the country, with a total length of 305 km from the border with Bulgaria (Deve Bair) to the border with Albania (Kjafaasan), 62% of the country’s population being directly connected and benefiting from its development.
The construction of the motorway section Gostivar-Kichevo will be implemented in three phases, and the detailed design for Phase I (subsection Bukojcani – Kichevo) has already been developed. The WBIF finances the preparation of the detailed design for Phase II: subsection Gostivar – Gorna Gjonovica (17 km) and access road towards the Mavrovo Ski Resort (5km).
By upgrading the existing road to motorway standards, the investment will facilitate international transport and trade in the region. Linking regional markets to the Durrës Port will support regeneration and help rebalance economic growth.
