Europe to spend EUR 5.1 trillion on trans-European transport network until 2030

The European Commission, the Council and the Parliament have agreed on proposals to transform the existing patchwork of European roads, railways, airports and canals into a unified transport network (TEN-T) for EUR 5.1 trillion by 2030. The new policy focuses on the most critical elements: cross-border projects, interoperability and intermodality between different means of transport. For instance, the core railway network will be equipped with the European ERTMS signalling system. Member states will have to provide sufficient parking space along core network roads for commercial users. Alternative clean fuels have to be available at the key nodes of the network. (ben)
