According to EIB website, the A16 Rotterdam motorway in the Netherlands will connect the current A13 motorway with the A20 motorway near the Terbregseplein motorway connection hub, passing around the north-eastern border of the Municipality of Rotterdam. The new road will relieve congestion on the A13 and A20 motorways and on large parts of the underlying roads network. The 11 km A16 Rotterdam thus helps to increase connectivity and liveability in the wider Rotterdam region. It aims to increase capacity and improve road safety on sections of the Dutch motorway near Rotterdam and underlying road network, and is being procured as a design-build-finance-maintain (DBFM) public-private partnership (PPP).
The project is acceptable for EIB financing from an Environmental and Social standpoint with conditionalities presented in the Environmentala and Social Data Sheet.
Total loan amount is not disclosed for this project.
No contact information provided at the time of disclosure.
ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF EIB
The EIB Complaints Mechanism is designed to facilitate and handle complaints against the EIB by individuals, organizations or corporations affected by EIB activities. When exercising the right to lodge a complaint against the EIB, any member of the public has access to a two-tier procedure, one internal - the Complaints Mechanism Office - and one external - the European Ombudsman. A complaint can be lodged via a written communication addressed to the Secretary General of the EIB, via email to the dedicated email address email@example.com, by completing the online complaint form available at the following address: http://www.eib.org/complaints/form, via fax or delivered directly to the EIB Complaints Mechanism Division, any EIB local representation office or any EIB staff. For further details, check: http://www.eib.org/attachments/strategies/complaints_mechanism_policy_en.pdf
When dissatisfied with a complaint to the EIB Complaints Mechanism, citizens can then turn towards the European Ombudsman. A memorandum of Understanding has been signed between the EIB and the European Ombudsman establishes that citizens (even outside of the EU if the Ombudsman finds their complaint justified) can turn towards the Ombudsman on issues related to 'maladministration' by the EIB. Note that before going to the Ombudsman, an attempt must be made to resolve the case by contacting the EIB. In addition, the complaint must be made within two years of the date when the facts on which your complaint is based became known to you. You can write to the Ombudsman in any of the languages of the European Union.
