The project involves the construction of the 56.8 km M30 motorway between Miskolc and Tornyosnémeti at the border with Slovakia. It will complete the TEN-T comprehensive network as the last missing link of the corridor in the region and a key cross-border section.
The project is part of the Transport National Strategy and of the indicative list of major projects related to the Hungarian ITOP (Integrated Transport Operational Programme), which was subject to a Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) in 2012. The project falls under Annex I of the Directive 2011/92/EU as amended by Directive 2014/52/EU and was subject to environmental impact assessment (EIA), which was appropriately completed. Appropriate avoidance, mitigation and compensation measures were determined, including fauna/flora protection, noise reduction measures, landscaping and reforestation as well as water protection measures. No significant residual environmental impact is expected if all the identified mitigation measures are properly implemented.
The project contributes to urban transport sustainability and health, as it provides a bypass function to several settlements and is thus an essential component of their strategic urban mobility plans. It also supports the strengthening of the EU's economic, social and territorial cohesion and contributes to the objectives set out in the Territorial and Settlements Development Strategy Hungary 2014 - 2020.

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: firstname.lastname@example.org, 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.
