The EIB is extending a loan of EUR 110m to Belarus to finance the rehabilitation and upgrade of a 91 km long section of the M7 highway. This is part of the extended Trans-European Transport network. The project also includes the modernisation of the associated border-crossing infrastructure between Belarus and Lithuania at Kamienny Loh. The investment will increase road transport capacity and create safer driving conditions. The M7 is a strategic transport corridor, representing the shortest route from the Klaipeda port on the Baltic Sea in Lithuania through Kaunas and Vilnius to Minsk, Kyiv, and ultimately to the Black Sea.
