Communication published by the European Commission on 14 December 2021, concerning the extension of the trans-European transport network (TEN-T) to neighbouring third countries.
The ambition of the trans-European transport network (TEN-T) policy is to provide for seamless, sustainable and effective transport across the European Union (EU) while strengthening social, economic and territorial cohesion. Its legal framework is set out by Regulation (EU) 1315/2013, also known as the TEN-T Regulation. The Commission tabled a proposal to update this Regulation on 14 December 2021.
The TEN-T represents the highest level of infrastructure planning of the EU, and a centrepiece in the projection of the EU transport policy to third countries. Article 8 of TEN-T Regulation sets out the framework for cooperation with third countries, with a focus on cooperation with the neighbouring countries. This Communication outlines how to address common challenges with enlargement countries and countries in the Neighbourhood, and how the EU plans to work with these partners in the TEN-T policy area. It also sets out the measures that aim at completing the extended TEN-T in these countries.
The Communication was published by the European Commission on 14 December 2021 as part of policy package aimed at improving the EU's transport system and its sustainability.
