10 more implementation successes show the continuous impact of the TEN-T Program

Creation date: November 27, 2012

The Trans-European Transport Network Executive Agency (TEN-T EA) launched for the second year running a campaign aimed at showcasing successfully implemented TEN-T projects. The “10 (more) out of TEN” campaign highlights ten additional TEN-T projects whose successful implementation has yielded regional, national and European added value and which are helping to complete the TEN-T network.

 

TEN-T EA Executive Director Dirk Beckers explained: “We are again delighted to showcase the project successes that the TEN-T Programme has had in building and improving the EU’s transport system. We are presenting 10 more projects, but let’s remember that the true scope of what has been achieved through the TEN-T Programme is far wider and has delivered results to the benefit of all.”

The “10 (More) out of TEN” campaign aims for stakeholders to be aware of the impact of the TEN-T Programme, as well as the TEN-T Executive Agency’s role in its effective management. It includes:

  • A publication which highlights the ten selected projects distributed at the 2012 TEN-T Day and the 2012 TEN-T Calls for Proposals Info Day on 28-29 November.
  • A special section of the TEN-T EA’s website (http://tentea.ec.europa.eu/en/ten-t_implementation_successes.htm) showcasing these and other completed projects that the TEN-T Executive Agency has managed on behalf of the European Commission. This section will continue to expand as more projects are successfully completed.

The “10 (more) out of TEN” projects presented hail from a variety of countries, outlining the broad geographical significance of the TEN-T Programme, which supports actions in every EU Member State:

  • Improving rail infrastructure in Britain (United Kingdom)
  • Finalising a faster rail network in France (France)
  • Improving the airport experience in the Azores (Portugal)
  • Greening road transport through car battery switching stations (Denmark, Spain, Austria, Belgium, The Netherlands, Luxembourg)
  • Helping the high speed rail connection to Brussels Airport: Diabolo (Belgium)
  • Ramping up rail terminal facilities at the Port of Venice (Italy)
  • Building bridges for breaking bottlenecks on the Danube (Germany)
  • Preparing new services for Mediterranean ports (Spain, Italy, Greece, Slovenia)
  • Going underground to provide improved rail capacity: Malmö Citytunnel (Sweden)
  • Reducing road congestion near the Port of Dunkirk (France)

About the TEN-T Programme and the TEN-T Executive Agency

The TEN-T Programme supports around 350 projects with co-financing amounting to around €8 billion in the entire 2007-2013 Financial Perspective. The projects, which involve all EU Member States and cover all modes of transport, range from feasibility studies to complex and long infrastructure works, with the overarching goal of completing the TEN-T network in order to render freight and passenger transport between EU Member States faster, safer, cheaper and more sustainable.

 

The TEN-T EA, established by the European Commission, implements the TEN-T Programme on its behalf and in particular to monitor the technical and financial implementation of all TEN-T projects. The Agency’s multi-national team is based in Brussels.
