    Modernisation of 139 km of the twin electrified E-30 railway line in south eastern Poland.

    The project is located on the TEN-T network. It will increase the quality of rail services provided in Poland and thereby promote sustainable transport solutions in line with EU objectives. Furthermore, the project is located in a Convergence Region and by improving accessibility facilitates regional development. The project is therefore eligible under Article 309 point (a) projects for developing less-developed regions and point (c) common interest.

    Environmental aspects

    The project falls under Annex II of EIA Directive 85/337/EEC, as amended, and was screened in by the Competent Authorities. Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA) have been performed and the Competent Authorities gave their positive Environmental Decision (ED) for all sections of the project at various times during 2008 (four decisions in three different regions). The project crosses the Natura 2000 sites Puszca Nieplolmicka SPA (PLB120002) and Dolny Dunajec SAC (PLH120085) and passes in close proximity to a number of other Natura 2000 sites. Outside these areas various protected species may also be impacted by the project. So the provisions of the Habitats Directive (92/43/EEC) and Birds Directive (2009/147/EC) apply. To be further appraised.

    The promoter is a public contracting authority subject to the provisions of the relevant Directives. The main works have already been procured through open tender after advertising in the OJEU. The proposed arrangements are to be reviewed during appraisal.


    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).
