• Trans-European Transport Networks: Options For A Sustainable Future

    This paper looks at the trans-European transport networks (TEN-T) and the discussions surrounding the revision of Decision No 1692/96/EC, and the Regulation 2236/956.

     The first chapter aims to give an NGO view on the revision of the TEN-T guidelines, while at the same time raising some issues related to the transparency of the process. In a second chapter we will look at what needs to be changed and propose a set of recommendations for a better transport system in Europe.

    Given the imminent accession of eight countries in Central and Eastern Europe7 to the European Union, this publication will also examine the challenges raised by the extension of the TEN-T and will propose a set of new objectives for the networks, so as to take into account the sustainability objectives promoted by the European Union.
