IAM: Complaints Mechanism (CM)

ID: SG/E/2020/21

Date Filed: Dec. 15, 2020

Date Closed: Oct. 12, 2022

Status: Monitoring


The EIB Group Complaints Mechanism (EIB-CM) received two complaints concerning the “AUTOBAHN A49 FRITZLAR - OHMTAL DREIECK (PPP)” project (SG/E/2020/21 and SG/E/2021/02), which were dealt with in one Conclusions Report (because of the two complaints having largely overlapping allegations). The object of the complaints is the design, construction, financing, operation and maintenance of a section of the A49 motorway in the German federal state of Hessen. The allegations raised in the complaints include (i) failure of the project to comply with applicable legislation, including EU environmental law, especially shortcomings of the assessment as required by the EIA Directive (public access to information), and other joint assessments such as required by the Water Framework Directive, the Habitats Directive and non-compliance in terms of noise impacts, and (ii) the project’s non-compliance with the Paris Agreement and the EIB’s climate change commitments.
