This video stockshot on transport illustrates the following chapters: - Airport / Planes / Air Traffic; - Decarbonisation; - Intermodality; - Inland Waterways / Motorways of the Sea; - Railway Development; - Roads. The Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T) is a major element for economic growth and job creation in Europe because the existence of an integrated, technology-led and user-friendly transport system is regarded as a key factor for the competitiveness of the UE. The TEN-T is essential to facilitate the mobility of persons, goods and services and thus strengthening the internal market and the economic and social cohesion of the EU. Envisioning such a network, the European Commission's TEN-T programme dedicates financial support towards the realisation of important transport infrastructure projects - in line with the overreaching goal of European competitiveness, job creation and cohesion. The projects represent all transport modes – air, rail, road, and maritime/inland waterway – plus logistics and intelligent transport systems, and involve all EU Member States. The trans-European Transport Network Executive Agency (TEN-T EA) assures the technical and financial implementation and management of the Trans-European Transport Network programme.

10:00:24 1.1. Title: MAASTRICHT CONTROL CENTRE, THE NETHERLANDS The Maastricht Upper Area Control Centre (MUAC), operated by Eurocontrol on behalf of four States, provides air traffic control for the upper airspace (above 24,500 feet, i.e. approximately 7,500 metres) of Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg and north-west Germany. The international area of responsibility it covers illustrates the harmonisation of airspace and represents a model for cross-border projects in the spirit of the Single European Sky. Together with its civil and military partners in Belgium, France, Germany, Luxembourg, the Netherlands and Switzerland, MUAC is currently working on the creation of the Functional Airspace Block Europe Central (FABEC), the functional airspace block at the heart of Europe, with the objective of implementing multinational management of the airspace of those six countries. FABEC airspace accounts for 55% of all European traffic and is located above or close to major European airports. A study for the development of FABEC will receive 13.780.130 million euro in EU support from the 2010 TEN-T Multi-Annual Call, representing 49.4% of the total project cost (27.895 million euro). It will identify solutions to further implement the Single European Sky II (SES II) legislation and aims to improve safety, capacity and environmental performance of air transport, as well as reduce costs. It includes 13 activities covering the development of a new airspace design and cost-efficiency measures in the areas of Communication, Navigation, Surveillance Services (CNS) to human resources-related issues like training and working conditions. 00:00:05

10:19:40 5. RAILWAY DEVELOPMENT 00:14:53
10:19:40 Title The aim of the pilot project is to link Brussels Zaventem Airport with the high speed rail network: Brussels-Antwerp-Amsterdam and Paris-Brussels/Brussels-Köln-Amsterdam-London high speed railway axis, each line forming part of Priority Project 2. The airport is currently only accessible by a dead-end railway station served by local and regional trains, or by very busy road. By constructing a northbound tunnel underneath the airport, the new link will connect Zaventem Airport to the north-south railway axis between Brussels and Antwerp. (Independently of the current project, a new track is to be constructed on the central reservation of the E19 highway between Brussels and Antwerp. This project contributes to the interconnection of high speed lines, and the establishment of an interoperable rail network, while reducing the isolation of Zaventem Airport, a major economic hub threatened by problems of accessibility and congestion. The EU contribution represents 5.59% in works and studies out of the total cost (266,970,00 euro). 00:00:05
