The EU's TEN-T Programme will co-fund with €1 million studies for the construction of an intermodal terminal at Timisoara International Airport in Romania with the aim to promote the integration of freight transport within the air, rail and road TEN-T network.
This project covers a feasibility study as well as technical, economic and environmental studies that will form the basis for the terminal's design and construction. Once completed, it is expected to contribute to the intermodal growth of freight transport, thus promoting the overall economic development of the region.
The project was selected for EU funding with the assistance of external experts under the TEN-T Annual Call 2013, priority 'Multimodal transport'. Its implementation will be monitored by INEA, the European Commission's Innovation and Networks Executive Agency.
The project is to be completed by the end of 2015.
The TEN-T Programme was established by the European Commission to support the construction and upgrade of transport infrastructure across the European Union.
The INEA is managing the technical and financial implementation of the TEN-T programme.
