European Parliament and the Council step up efforts to build a sustainable and resilient trans-European transport network


On 18 December 2023, the European Parliament and the Council reached an agreement on the regulation underpinning the trans-European transport network (TEN-T). The agreement outlines plans to significantly step up efforts to improve the sustainability and resilience of the TEN-T. 

A set of mandatory targets will be introduced including a new requirement for all 430 major cities along the TEN-T network to develop Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans. The targets also outline plans to integrate the maritime space with other transport modes by upgrading short-sea shipping routes, and developing maritime ports. 

In addition, transport links with neighbouring third countries will be improved by integrating Ukraine, Moldova and Western Balkan partners into the European Transport Corridors

This new agreement on the TEN-T will be a key theme at Connecting Europe Days in Brussels (Europe's flagship mobility event) from 2 to 5 April 2024.
