Revised TEN-T regulation: The future of mobility is European, we can only build it together!

TEN-T policy plays a major role to make mobility across borders more connected, smarter and greener. In late April 2023, the revised TEN-T regulation has entered the negotiations in the trilogue between the European Commission, European Parliament and the Council of the EU. While the Parliament puts a major focus on a timely and efficient implementation and calls for more ambitious targets, the Council partly lowers the ambitions originally proposed by Commission and has major reservations on governance issues.

Scandria®Alliance members are very pleased to see that the positions adopted by the Council and the Parliament contain a number of positive features in line with our 2022 TEN-T position paper. Amongst others, the inclusion of the Oslo-Stockholm railway stretch on the ScanMed Corridor, the definition of urban nodes as functional urban areas including their peri-urban surrounding as well as a strengthened corridor governance with a key role for the coordinators and an enhanced inclusion of local and regional authorities responsible for urban nodes are highly appreciated.

The first Scandria®Alliance newsletter puts a spotlight on the current discussions on the TEN-T. Our members are ready to further cooperate for greener and more resilient European transport corridors and to accompany the implementation of the new TEN-T regulation once the European institutions have concluded their current negotiations on it.
