    Description
    Objectives

    Investment into rolling stock for S-Bahn Breisgau in Baden-Württemberg (Network 9a around Freiburg) Sub-operation under the programme loan for rolling stock and related infrastructure for local and regional public transport in Baden-Württemberg (2014-0765)

    The new rolling stock will improve public transport services in the Freiburg Breisgau region (part of the Breisgau S-Bahn). More passengers should be attracted to public transport, resulting in improvements in overall mobility while reducing the adverse impact of transport on the environment.

    Environmental aspects
    Procurement

    The manufacture of rolling stock does not fall under either Annex I or Annex II of the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Directive 2011/92/EU as amended. It is not clear yet if any depots are necessary at this stage. As an associated facility a new depot might be necessary. This could fall under Annex II of the EIA Directive, and therefore may be subject to an EIA procedure. German law requires compliance with Directive 2011/92/EC, as amended, to obtain building permits for such elements. If construction of a new facility is required, then the promoter undertakes to inform the Bank on environmental compliance by submitting a copy of the environmental decision and the non-technical summary of the EIA (if applicable), as well as evidence that the requirements of the EU Habitats Directive 92/43/EEC and the EU Birds Directive 79/409/EEC have been fulfilled (form A/B or equivalent document to the satisfaction of the Bank) – if applicable.

    The Bank will require the promoter to ensure that contracts for the implementation of the project have been and shall be tendered in accordance with the relevant applicable EU procurement legislation (Directives 2004/18/EC and/or 2004/17/EC as well as Directives 89/665/EEC and 92/13/EEC) as interpreted by the Court of Justice of the EU, with publication of tender notices in the EU Official Journal, as and where required. Network 9a is published under 2014/S 250-444818, d.d . 30.12.2014.
