BTJ 2/16 - Focus: TEN-T developments
Publication date: 2016-05-04
The Baltic Sea region (BSR) is crossed by three core network corridors (CNCs) – Scan-Med, North Sea-Baltic and Baltic-Adriatic, and has direct access to the fourth, the Orient/East-Med.
Their implementation within the TEN-T policy has a large but untapped potential to stimulate positive effcts on the transport sector and the immediate geographical areas they cover.
However, as this instrument is quite new, the participation opportunities, needed commitments and policy impacts are fairly unknown among the stakeholders, which may threaten its success.

- Mapped out. New Baltic TEN-T projects, by Przemysław Myszka
Last year in our 2/15 issue we presented in detail four new TEN-T core corridors which either crosscut our region (Baltic-Adriatic, North Sea-Baltic, and Scandinavian-Mediterranean), or start/end here (Rostock being part of Orient/East-Med). After 12 months a great deal of signatures have been put under EU co-funded projects to be completed across these seamless future arteries of freight & pax traffic.
