The impact of Ten-T completion on growth, jobs and the environment
Methodology and results : final report - Study
TEN-T policy is a major European Commission policy directed towards development of a Europe-wide multimodal transport network, which contributes to the three principal objectives of European policy-making: fostering growth, creating jobs and mitigating climate change. The TEN-T consists of a “core network” layer to be completed by 2030 and a “comprehensive network” layer to be completed by 2050. The comprehensive network covers all European regions, whereas the core network represents the most strategically important parts of the comprehensive network. A major instrument to facilitate and... streamline the coordinated development of the core network is the “corridor approach”, in which a set of nine core network corridors (CNC) have been identified. The objective of this study is to assess the growth, jobs and climate impacts resulting from investments to be made between 2017 and 2030 to implement each CNC, as well as the TEN-T core network overall.
