Projektträger – zwischengeschaltetes Finanzinstitut
The project consists of the rehabilitation and reconstruction of various TEN-T railway lines within Hungary, as well as purchasing 42 electric multiple units (EMUs) and implementing the GSM-R system on certain TEN-T corridors. The EIB loan will support the national contribution to schemes also co-financed by grants from the Cohesion Fund from the EU programming period 2007-2013 and phasing into 2014-2020.
The project contributes to the objective of promoting sustainable transport on TEN-T core and comprehensive networks, as increased rail usage with a shift from road will reduce road traffic emissions and road traffic accidents. Moreover, the project will promote economic and social cohesion as the schemes are located in convergence areas.

The project is a multi-investment program, therefore the need for an environmental impact assessment (EIA) may vary according to each scheme and will be analysed on a case-by-case basis, as well as any potential significant impacts on protected areas. Details on environmental aspects of each scheme and compliance with EU directives, when and where relevant, will be checked before schemes are allocated under the framework loan. The project is expected to have a positive impact on the environment by contributing to a modal shift from road to rail transport and to maintain railway transport attractiveness and competitiveness.

The promoter’s procurement procedures will be checked during appraisal.
