TEN-T Planning Methodology

Trans-European Transport Network planning methodology

The Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T) policy is part of the central planning guideline of European transport planning. The objective of the TEN-T policy is to ensure the provision of the EU infrastructure in line with the economic, social and political objectives formulated in the Lisbon Treaty. More specifically, the TEN-T policy is aimed at maintaining current and shaping future multi-model networks on the territory of the Member States. With the continuing enlargement of the European Union the necessity for a reformed European planning approach became evident.

The TEN-T network planning approach developed in this study is aimed at supporting the EU's planning ambitions by providing a methodological backbone to the TEN-T policy, in particular for the "core network" as defined in the Green Paper.
