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.
