    Environmental aspects

    The installation of fixed line telecommunication networks do not fall under Annexes I and II of the Directive 2014/52/EU amending the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Directive 2011/92/EU, and are therefore not subject to mandatory Environmental Impact Assessments. The residual environmental impact will be very limited as most of the elements such as cables are installed underground.


    The promoter has to ensure that contracts for the implementation of the project have been/shall be tendered in accordance with the relevant applicable national and EU procurement legislation with publication of tender notices in the EU Official Journal, as and where required.
