The investments proposed under the project do not fall under either Annex I or Annex II of the Environmental Impact Assessment Directive 85/337/EEC as refurbishment/manufacturing and use of rail rolling stock is not included in either list. All else equal, the project is expected to have a positive environmental impact by helping the railways to maintain modal share in key sections of the passenger market that are most appropriately met by rail.
