Mandatory targets for the TEN-T network, part of the European Green Deal

April 5, 2024

As we await the official adoption of regulation strengthening the TEN-T network, part of the European Green Deal, let’s review the mandatory targets set under the political agreement:

  • The European Rail Traffic Management System (ERTMS) will be implemented throughout the entire TEN-T network to enhance safety and efficiency in rail travel. Consequently, older national ‘class B’ systems will be phased out gradually
  • Safe parking spaces will be created approximately every 150km on the main and extended road network of TEN-T by 2040. This is crucial to ensure that professional drivers have safe working conditions
  • Each of the 430 big cities along the TEN-T must create plans for Sustainable Urban Mobility (SUMPs) to encourage using transportation with zero or low emissions
  • Trains will be able to travel on main and extended passenger railway lines at speeds of 160km/h or faster by 2040 as part of the TEN-T plan
  • Major airports handling 12 million or more passengers annually will need to establish connections to long-distance rail, enhancing passenger connectivity and bolstering the competitiveness of rail transport
  • More freight will be moved using sustainable transport methods, with improvements in handling capacity at freight terminals. The number of transshipment terminals will also need to align with current and projected traffic needs in the sector
  • The maritime space will see more efficient integration with other transport modes. Short sea shipping routes will be upgraded, and there will be further development of maritime ports.

Which sustainable transport initiative excites you the most: developing Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans, faster trains, safe parking spaces, upgraded rail systems, airport-rail connections, eco-friendly freight transport, or enhanced maritime integration?
