EU to invest over € 320m in transport projects

By Admin Eltis / Updated: 07 Oct 2014

The European Commission’s trans-European transport network (TEN-T) Programme has announced details of its € 320m investment to support key transport infrastructure projects around Europe.

Divided between two programme calls, the funding will be distributed among a total of 106 projects. The first, the € 230m Multi-Annual Programme Call, is funding 52 projects that focus on Air Traffic Management, European Rail Traffic Management Systems, Intelligent Transport Systems, Motorways of the Sea and Priority Projects.

The second is the Annual Programme, which will distribute € 90.7m among 54 projects. These projects will accelerate and facilitate the implementation of TEN-T projects, and promote innovation and new technologies for transport infrastructure and facilities that contribute to decarbonisation or the reduction of the external costs.

Vice-President Siim Kallas, EU commissioner for mobility and transport said: 'These key projects with European added-value will contribute to delivering a complete transport network, supporting seamless mobility of goods and people throughout the European Union.'

The projects will be monitored by the Innovation and Networks Executive Agency (INEA), working together with the project beneficiaries across the Member States and under the auspices of the Directorate-General for Mobility and Transport of the European Commission.
