    Environmental aspects

    The project is part of the Strategic Operational Plan-Transport (SOP-T) which was subject to a strategic environmental assessment following Romanian legislation in accordance with SEA Directive 2001/42/EC. The Environmental report was approved in January 31, 2007. The project falls under Annex I of the Directive 85/337/EEC on Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) as amended and an Environmental Impact Assessment has been satisfactorily carried out. The main residual negative impacts of the project are: conversion and permanent loss of agricultural and forest land, additional noise, vibration, visual alteration of the landscape and severance of flora and fauna habitats. A number of mitigation measures have been specified in order to reduce the negative impacts of the project. The motorway crosses only rural lands and does not require any resettlement of persons. The project is acceptable for Bank financing from an environmental point of view.


    The RNCMNR is a publicly owned company subject to the provisions of the public procurement Directive 2004/18/EC, as transposed into Romanian Law. Procurement commenced in December 2010 with relevant announcements being published in Romania and the OJEU. The procurement of the sub-project is deemed acceptable by the Bank.
