    Environmental aspects

    The project does not fall under either Annex I or Annex II of the Environmental Impact Assessment Directive 85/337/EC, as amended by Directives 1997/11/EC and 2003/35/EC, as manufacturing and use of rail rolling stock is not included in either list.

    As the promoter is owned by public authorities it is obliged to follow Swedish and EU legislation regarding public procurement.


    Before financing approval by the Board of Directors, and before loan signature, projects are under appraisal and negotiation. The data provided on this page is therefore indicative and cannot be considered to represent official EIB policy (see also the Explanatory notes).
