According to the Bank's website, this project finances the expansion of a 202km road in the north of Mongolia from Ulaanbaatar to Darkhan, the country's second-largest city.
The project will include: construction of a new 2-lane road, including roundabouts, U-turns and stopping areas; provision of road furniture; construction of crossings over eight railways; construction and rehabilitation of bridges and culverts; and rehabilitation of toll booths.
According to the bank, the main potential impacts during construction and operation will be associated with air quality as a result of dust and gaseous emissions, noise and vibration, disturbance and loss of soils, consumption of materials and waste generation, land take and economic displacement, construction and public health and safety, management of the workforce, road and traffic safety and some impacts on cultural heritage.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF EBRD
The Project Complaint Mechanism (PCM) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who have been or are likely to be adversely affected by an European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD)-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the PCM, it may assess compliance with EBRD's own policies and procedures to prevent harm to the environment or communities or it may assist you in resolving the problem that led to the complaint through a dialogue with those implementing the project. Additionally, the PCM has the authority to recommend a project be suspended in the event that harm is imminent. You can contact the PCM at firstname.lastname@example.org or you can submit a complaint online using an online form, http://www.ebrd.com/eform/pcm/complaint_form?language=en. You can learn more about the PCM and how to file a complaint at http://www.ebrd.com/work-with-us/project-finance/project-complaint-mechanism.html.
