The project is a major scheme under the framework loan "Roland Garros Airport-Reunion" and consists of Phase 2 of the airport Development Plan 2011-2023. It includes the construction of new runway end safety areas (RESAs) at both ends of the two runways, the reinforcement of the protection dike of one of the runways, the reconfiguration and renewal of the existing passenger terminal facilities, new car parks and other minor upgrades.
The project has the objective of improving safety performance, increasing climate resilience and alleviating current operational constraints and bottlenecks in order to maintain target levels of service.
The investments included in this allocation would normally be classified under Annex II of the Directive 2014/52/EU amending the EIA Directive 2011/92/EU, meaning that the competent authority makes the decision as to whether a formal environmental impact assessment (EIA) is required or not. Alignment to this and to other National and EU environmental legislation, including the Habitats Directive 92/43/EEC and the Birds Directive 2009/147/EC, the EU Directive on Energy Performance of Buildings, the Water Framework Directive (WFD) 2000/60/EC and the status of any pre-existing development consents will be reviewed and assessed during appraisal.
The Bank will require the Promoter to ensure that contracts for the implementation of the project have been tendered in accordance with the relevant applicable EU procurement legislation, Directive 2014/25/EU, where applicable, as well as Directive 92/13/EEC, as interpreted by the Court of Justice of the EU, with publication of tender notices in the Official Journal of the EU, as and where required.
