The Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T) regulation places a duty on the Member States of the EU to improve their transport infrastructure, in order to eventually bring all States to a shared EU standard. This guide provides and overview of the regulation and its rationale. It also highlights the infrastructure in Wales that will need be upgraded by 2030, to bring it line with the new regulation. It explains what parts of the infrastructure network is affected, and how the necessary improvements may be delivered.
While delivery of the TEN-T improvements is the responsibility of Member States, the EU has passed a Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) regulation. The CEF funding stream provides the primary EU financial contribution implementation of the core TEN-T network, and is explained in this guide. Other potential sources of funding for TEN-T projects are also covered here.
