Description

The Beskyd Railway Tunnel is being built as part of the Pan European Corridors to alleviate a bottleneck between Lviv and Chop. The project is an important benchmark for transparency and efficiency as it is the first Ukrainian public sector project to which FIDIC construction standards and EBRD procurement policies are being applied. It is expected to be completed in late 2017 or early 2018.
