Increase of availability and service quality of passenger railway transports in Bavaria.
Vorgeschlagene EIB-Finanzierung (voraussichtlicher Betrag)
EUR 36 million
Gesamtkosten (voraussichtlicher Betrag)
EUR 72 million
The proposed project does not fall under either Annex I or Annex II of the Environmental Impact Assessment directive 85/337/EEC as rail rolling stock is not included in either list. The provision of improved rail passenger services is expected to help in the modal shift for passenger transport from road to rail. On a passenger km basis, rail has significant energy saving, emission reductions and safety improvements if compared to other transport modes. Rail transport may also improve noise level on aggregate basis. As a consequence, the project is expected to have a positive impact on the environment. Compliance with environmentally friendly design standards and other potential environmental matters will be appraised in detail during the mission.
The Promoter is subject to and follows EU procurement procedures including publication in the EU Official Journal (in this particular case, Directive 2004/17/CE). All contracts over the relevant EU Directives thresholds have been or will be put out to international tendering.
