    Environmental aspects

    The project falls under Annex II of the EIA Directive 85/337/EEC, as amended, and the Competent Authority decided (Decision Number 27-IIP/2009) that, in this case, no EIA is required and that the project is not likely to have significant effects on a site of nature conservation importance.


    The project has been procured by the National Railway Infrastructure Company (NRIC) and contracts have been awarded through international open tenders in accordance with the Directive 2004/18/EC.
