With the support of the World Bank, Belarus conducted the Transit Corridor Improvement Project with the aim to improve transport connectivity, border crossing procedures and safety for domestic and international road users on selected sections of the M6 corridor.
This project included three components:
1) Improvement of M6 Transit Corridor from two to four lanes;
2) Improving traffic safety, implementing a Traffic & Road Safety Coordination Center, road-side services and conducting road safety studies;
3) Improving the Border Management system in Belarus.
Our approach aimed to:
- Use the simplified road safety assessment methodology developed by the CTL for assess the road safety performance of 610 km of the M-1/E30 road sections Brest (Kozlovichi) – Minsk – Redki (Russian border) and back (total 1220 km).
- Perform a road safety impact assessment and economic analysis with the aim to evaluate the new project versus the do-nothing alternative, in order to optimize the investment.
- Perform a translation of all relevant documentation of the project on two languages: English and Russian.
