The financing for the LRVs is divided into two lots. Lot 1 will provide €23.4m from a combination of funding through European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) 2014-2020 funding period and state financing. The other 12 vehicles will be funded with €21m of state funding.
The financing is being provided through the Thuringian Construction Bank (TAB) and the Thuringian State Office for Construction and Transport (TLBV). Funding for a further nine LRVs through the ERDF’s 2021-2027 funding period is being examined.
