    Environmental aspects

    The purchase of new rolling stock to replace old equipment will help to make rail transport more attractive than road transport. This will result in a reduction in the number of journeys undertaken by private car and limit the harmful effects associated with this mode of transport (local atmospheric pollution and noise).


    The Région Rhône-Alpes is an organisation subject to EU procurement directives. All works contracts for projects financed by the Bank will be issued in accordance with the provisions of EU law.
