1 TEN-T guidelines and CEF 2e TEN-T CONFERENTIE Duurzame samenwerking in de logistieke sector Nederland Noordrijn-Westfalen Horst Herald Ruijters MOVE B1, 30 October 2014

2 What is the new trans-european transport network? Eligibility and obligations

3 The key elements of the TEN-T guidelines Support implementation of White Paper through new infrastructure policy including: Dual layer approach based on an objective methodology: core and comprehensive network Common deadlines to achieve network (2030/2050) Ambitious standards for all infrastructures Corridors and coordinators for implementation

4 Maps: eligibility and concentrated action A core and comprehensive network based on an objective methodology Commission proposed and Parliament and Council accepted and adjusted the methodology Comprehensive network to ensure accessibility to all regions Core network focussing on strategically most important parts

5 Requirements Comprehensive network Mainly basis for specific legal acts (e.g. tunnel safety directive, TSIs, Single Sky, etc.) Rail: ERTMS + electrification with possibility for exemptions Inland waterways: class IV with possibility for exemptions Safety and security, environmental protection, climate resilience, accessibility for all users

6 Requirements Core network Road: express roads or motorways, parking areas, alternative clean fuels Rail: ERTMS, electrification, European track gauge Rail freight lines: 22.5 t axle load, 740 m train length, 100 km/h line speed Alternative clean fuels for ports, inland ports and airports

7 How to implement the Trans-European Network? Core Network Corridors and Coordinators

8 Implementation tools Coordinators and Core Network Corridors Support the implementation of the core network Synchronise investments in order to optimise network benefits Multimodal Involving at least 3 Member States European Coordinators for 9 core network corridors Work Plans Coordinators for ERTMS and Motorways of the Sea

9 Corridor development Nomination of coordinators Analysis of the Corridor Consultation of Corridor Forum Drawing up work plan Approval of work plan by Member States Implementing decision

10 Work Plans: the central concept of core network corridor development To be submitted, by each European Coordinator, to the Member States concerned for their approval Setting out projects that contribute to the achievement of "corridor objectives" (removal of bottlenecks, development of interoperable traffic management systems etc.) Analysing investment needs and funding resources Constituting the basis for the Commission to adopt implementing acts Enabling "measurability" of progress (to be reported annually to EU Institutions and Member States concerned)

11 Core Network Corridors, frontrunners of the transport policy Deployment of intermodal and interoperable systems Freight services Rail noise Urban nodes ITS Innovative financing Accompanying measures Developing a wider corridor vision

12 How to implement the Trans-European Network? Connecting Europe Facility

19 CEF: 2014 calls for proposals (GRANTS) The Multi-annual Work Programme (MAP) 11 billion total, including 4bn from the Cohesion envelope Only for projects pre-identified in Annex I of CEF (Corridors, other sections on the core network, horizontal priorities) The Annual Work Programme (AP) 930 million Other projects on the core network Comprehensive network Connections with neighbouring countries Specific priorities which complement actions under the MAP (e.g.: Freight Services, Actions to reduce rail freight noise)

20 CEF Financial instruments: how does it work? 1 million from the EU Budget can generate 20+ million in investments (leverage effect) Project Company, - paying investment costs, interests, operational costs Senior Debt in forms of loans or bonds 600m Banks providing loans or Bonds bought by Pension Funds and insurance company) -Receiving revenues (from users, authorities ) -Reimbursing debt Sub-debt (funded or unfunded) provided by financial partner 100m Financial partner (EIB or national investment banks) 30m Funds from CEF Total cost: 700m Equity European 100m Investment Bank Funds from project sponsors or infrastructure owners

21 The new TEN-T framework Commonly agreed strong European approach Emphasis on EU added value Network approach Corridors: joint analysis and a stable project pipeline through agreed Work Plans Corridors: short, middle and long term Stronger engagement by MS and stakeholders (deadline, regulation) Growth and jobs

22 The new framework Stronger economical and transport policies Infrastructure as basis for transport policy: strategically most important Optimise investments: maximise the added value for the EU and for the countries individually Infrastructure as vector for economic growth
