The European Commission’s proposal on new TEN-T guidelines adopted on 19 October 2011 was welcomed by the Regional Participants, since it includes important achievement of South East European regional cooperation. For the first time, the SEETO (South East Europe Transport Observatory) Comprehensive Network was included in the TEN-T Comprehensive Network maps, which was characterised as one step further towards complete harmonisation with the TEN-T Comprehensive Network and fortification of the SEETO Comprehensive Network’s position of precursor of TEN-T Comprehensive Network in the South East Europe.
The SEETO Comprehensive Network is a one layer multimodal network which provides high level regional interconnections and connections of the Western Balkan with the EU (TEN-T). In its present form, the SEETO Comprehensive Network consists of 6,554km of roads, 4,807km of rails, 17 airports, four rivers, eight inland waterway ports and 10 seaports.
The regional transport network defined in the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for the Development of the Core Regional Transport Network was established by seven South East European Regional Participants and the European Commission in order to ensure stability and economic prosperity of South East Europe.
