    Objectives

    Upgrading of the Arlbergtunnel and the Perjentunnel in line with the EU Tunnel Safety Directive.

    The project is embedded into ASFINAG’s 2013-2018 tunnel safety investment programme. It is located on the 62km-long S16 Arlberg Expressway (E60) between Zams (Landeck) and Bludenz. The project has two components: (i) modernisation of the 14km-long bi-directional single-tube Arlberg tunnel, and (ii) the modernisation and upgrading to 2 x 2 tubes standard of the existing bi-directional single-tube Perjen and Lötz tunnels with a total length of 3.2km.

    During appraisal the Bank will verify compliance with the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Directive 2011/92/EU, Habitats Directive 92/43/EEC and Birds Directive 79/409/EEC as and where appropriate.
    The impact of Directive 2004/54/EC on road safety in tunnels, as amended by Regulation (EC) No 596/2009 of 18 June 2009, and of Directive 2008/96/CE on road safety, will be verified as well.
