According to the bank's website, the project concerns the construction of a new 70 km 2x2 lanes motorway section of the D1 motorway between the motorway junction with the A1 near Sebes and the motorway junction with the A3 at Turda.
The motorway aims to provide a link between the existing motorway sections A1 Orastie-Sibiu and A3 Gilau - Campia Turzii, with a total length of approx. 70 km, a design speed of 120 km/h, including 7 junctions, 4 service points, 4 rest areas, 1 maintenance and control centre, 1 maintenance and monitoring centre and 66 structures.
The EU and Romania national legal procedures have been properly followed in the project preparation and implementation. An Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) has been completed and the competent authorities have issued environmental decisions and building permits.
The new transport link will reduce congestion in the city centres along the corridor, notably by diverting most of the heavy goods vehicles, and enable further development of soft mobility options in the area. Enhancing travel time, reducing operating costs and improving travel safety (of vulnerable road users in particular).
The Promoter is a public contracting authority subject to the relevant EU directives. The procurement is following the principles of the Directives 2014/24/EC and 89/665/EC.

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.
