    Environmental aspects
    Procurement

    The project falls under Annex II of the EIA Directive and was screened out by the Competent Authorities on the basis of the preliminary environmental impact study. The project passes next to two Natura 2000 sites but the Competent Authority confirmed that the project will have no significant impact on them. Compliance with environmental legislations will be verified during appraisal.

    The project implementation is managed by the NIF Zrt. (National Infrastructure Developing Company), a public company obliged to comply with the European and National Public Procurement legislation. The procurement process will be verified during appraisal.
