After the completion of the public procurement procedure, at the end of 2015, the Contract was signed with the bidder who implemented the project according to the FIDIC Yellow Book according to the principle "Project and Build". The work began in August 2017, after the finalization and revision of the Main Project were completed and the construction permit was obtained.

The program is implemented by the Operational Structure for IPA Component III (OS), which consists of the following bodies: the Ministry of Sustainable Development and Tourism - the body responsible for the complete Program and Environmental Projects, then the Ministry of Transport and Maritime Affairs - the body in charge of transport projects and Directorate of Public Works as Implementing body in charge of contracting and carrying out projects.
