With the trans-European transport network (TEN-T) policy, the European Commission seeks to develop a modern, efficient and climate-friendly network covering all transport modes.

Despite the TEN-T’s importance for the economy and society, and despite the binding timelines and targeted financial support, it risks not being completed as planned. This is partly due to complex administrative procedures linked to permit-granting for cross-border projects as well as broader regulatory uncertainty, often resulting in delays and increased cost. To speed up the network’s completion, the Commission has proposed measures to integrate and shorten permit-granting for projects, and facilitate public consultations and the involvement of private investors.

On 3 December 2018, the Transport Council stated that much remains to be resolved before an agreement on the proposal becomes possible. The European Parliament’s Committee on Transport and Tourism adopted a report on the file on 10 January 2019. As interinstitutional negotiations cannot yet start, the file is expected to be closed at first reading during the February plenary session.
