EU supporting future Rail Freight Corridor 1 through co-financed project
10 December 2013 • Author: TEN-T EA
The European Union will co-finance with €1.61 million from the TEN-T Programme a series of actions to promote the concept of Rail Freight Corridors, which are important sections of pan-European rail infrastructure identified by EU Regulation 913/2010. In particular, the project will promote the implementation of the Rotterdam-Genoa Corridor 1.
The initiative, which was selected for financing under the 2012 TEN-T Annual Call, consists of studies to cover the development of the corridor information system. The studies also look at how to improve the quality of operations. Establishing an integrated corridor management system will also be one of the actions for this initiative.
Once completed, the studies will speed-up the implementation of the Corridor, ultimately contributing to making rail a more attractive mode of transport for freight across Europe.
The studies will be monitored by the Trans-European Transport Network Executive Agency (TEN-T EA) and are set to be completed by the end of December 2015.
