On 26 February 2010, the EIB Complaints Mechanism (EIB-CM) received a complaint concerning the Belgrade Urban Renewal project in Serbia and, in particular, the reconstruction works in Boulevard Kralja Aleksandra in Belgrade.

The complainant stated that this action was in breach of EU environmental legislation.
