Public consultation on the extension of the major trans-European transport axes to the neighbouring countries and regions

Good transport connections between the European Union and its neighbours are essential for trade and economic development. Smooth, safe and secure transport systems reinforce sustainable economic growth and competitiveness and ensure free movement of people, goods and services.

High Level Group

Following a ministerial seminar on Wider Europe for Transport in Santiago de Compostela on 7-8 June 2004 ( Conclusions of the seminar), a High Level Group has been established to look into the above mentioned issues. Based on previous exercises such as the Trans-European Transport Network policies ( TEN-T Guidelines,  map) and the Pan-European Corridors and Areas ( Status report of the Pan-European Transport Corridors and Transport Areas,  map), the Group should identify a set of major transnational transport axes and priority projects on these axes. It will also analyse some horizontal issues such as safety and security, intermodality and interoperability, etc. The Group had its first meeting on 18-19 October 2004 and the second meeting was held on 29 November 2004. You will find more detailed information in the PowerPoint presentation:  TEN-T Policy and projects in the future.

Public Consultation

A public consultation has been opened on how to connect better the major Trans-European transport axes to the neighbouring countries and regions. It will remain open until the end of March. Stakeholders are invited to express their ideas and views. In order to guide your reflection, a  working document as well as a list of   questions to the stakeholders for the Public consultation   has been prepared.

You can reply by:

  • e-mail to

  • postal address:
    European Commission
    Directorate General for Energy and Transport
    Unit B2 - TEN policies & technological
