180 million euros for TEN-T projects
In the framework of the multi annual program TEN-T (Trans-European Transport Network), the European Commission proposed three open questions. The deadline was September 23, 2011.
With the available 180 million euros, the European Commission wants to fund TEN-T projects in the areas of European Rail Traffic Management System (ERTMS), Motorways of the Sea (MoS) and River Information Services (RIS). The intention is to make transport by rail and by water safer and more attractive compared to other modes.
This year as part of the multi annual TEN-T program the focus on three areas: interoperability on the European rail network (100 million), realizing a viable alternative to busy roads by freight via sea lanes (70 million) and new infrastructure to manage the traffic on the inland waterways (10 million).
For proposals in the context of “Motorways of the Sea”, theTask Force of the North Sea Motorways issued an “open call”. The call closed on 23 September 2011.
