Project Description

Rail Corridor Priority Project 22

Rail Corridor Priority Project 22 is part of the strategic projects defined by the European Commission, Directorate general for Energy and Transport (DG TREN), with the Green Paper “TEN-T: A policy review – towards a better integrated trans-European transport network at the service of the common transport policy.”
The Green Paper provides the most recent political framework on TEN-T policy, which is part of the central planning guideline of European transport planning. The objective of the TEN-T policy is to ensure the provision of the EU infrastructure in line with the economic, social and political objectives formulated in the Lisbon Treaty. More specifically, the TEN-T policy is aimed at maintaining current and shaping future multi-modal networks on the territory of the Member States. The draft proposal (2008) for “Community guidelines for the development of the trans-European transport network” provides the framework for the analysis to be carried out in the assignment.
This study analyses how the objectives of the TEN-T Policy can be reached and which implications the completion of this corridor will cause.
