A study by the European Commission on "missing cross-border rail links"July 2018
The European Commission has published a report on the existing rail transport connections and the "missing links" on the EU's internal borders. It provides a comprehensive inventory of the 365 cross-border rail links which are underexploited or not exploited at all. In total, there are 176 missing rail links and, after consultation of the stakeholders and competent authorities, 48 of them – 9 of which are located along France's borders – were assessed as "potentially beneficial projects".
The study goes on to analyse the viability and usefulness of these missing links, their investment requirements and possible sources of funding. The study concludes by proposing recommendations to facilitate their implementation.Back to list
