Preliminary EIA Report
Positive comments about the tool
The preliminary EIA identified and assessed the direct and indirect effects of the construction of the bridge over the Danube River. Important advantage was the additional analysis of specific elements concerning recreational zones and the implementation of the tool in the early stages of the project. In that way the risks for the environment, human beings and settlements were identified and relevant measures were recommended before the design of the bridge was decided upon.
Negative comments about the tool
Some recommendations: social, economic and urban planning parameters and criteria should be more comprehensively explored.
