M-11 Highway is being constructed in compliance with the highest international environmental standards. The highway will be equipped with up-to-date local treatment facilities protecting water bodies from storm water, in addition, constructed wetlands will be arranged along the main line of the highway. Wildlife passages will be constructed at animal migration routes. Noise protection screens are planned to be installed near the residential areas affected by increased acoustic loads.
Environmental impact on aquatic biological resources and their habitat is strictly controlled in the course of the construction. As a part of environmental protection measures, construction of bridges is characterized by minimized temporary right-of-way areas located on coastal strips of water protection areas. Restrictions in work performance are set during the periods of spawning and feeding of young in order to protect spawning species.
