Why we are consulting
TEN-T policy remains key in promoting the free circulation of goods, services and citizens throughout the EU. It is instrumental in boosting economic, social and territorial cohesion between all Member States and their regions, as well as beyond the EU.
Global transport flows are changing in volume and direction, and the general transport system is undergoing a fundamental transformation through digitalisation, as well as clean, connected and autonomous mobility. Infrastructure use and efficiency, enhancing mobility concepts and new social aspects in transport will play a key role in this transition, calling for stronger cooperation between Member States and a wide range of other actors – both public and private ones. Regulation (EU) No 1315/2013 on Union guidelines for the development of the TEN-T foresees that, by 31 December 2023, the Commission shall carry out a review of the implementation of the core network, evaluating: compliance with the TEN-T provisions, progress in the implementation, changes in passenger and freight transport flows, developments in national transport infrastructure investments, and the need for amendments. Considering the new and far-reaching economic, political, technological and societal challenges described above, the Commission is in the process of launching a comprehensive review process, addressing issues such as standards and infrastructure requirements, implementation tools or various aspects of the comprehensive network, as well as soft measures.
As TEN-T policy brings direct benefits to European citizens and businesses by enhancing accessibility and enabling connectivity a broad consultation of the public opinion on the outcomes, shortcomings and possible perspectives of the current TEN-T policy is needed and will benefit the whole evaluation process.
