    Environmental aspects

    The Hungarian national law was followed on Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA), which is compliant with the EIA Directive 2011/92/EU, the Habitats Directive 92/43/EEC, and the Birds Directive 2009/147/EC. The construction and operation of the project is expected to impact soils, ground and surface waters, flora and fauna, landscape, built environment, air quality and noise. Natura 2000 special bird reservation area is found all along the track. Measures to reduce impacts are included in the project design and consist of landscaping, water and soil protection, vegetation planting and integration of noise protection measures. Since the scope of works is limited to widening and upgrade, the completed project is expected to have minimal negative effects on the environment and is expected not to breach EU directives on biodiversity.


    The promoter has tendered works and supervision contracts in accordance with the relevant applicable EU procurement legislation, Directive 2014/24/EU, with the publication of tender notices in the Official Journal of the European Union in 2016. Both Works and Engineering contracts were signed in August and March 2017, respectively.
