EUR 7 billion call for key European infrastructure projects

Railways

(BRUSSELS) - A call for proposals launched yesterday under the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) for Transport programme is making EUR 7 billion available for European transport infrastructure projects.

The majority of projects funded under this call will help to increase the sustainability of our overall transport network, putting the EU on track to meet the European Green Deal objective of cutting transport emissions by 90% by 2050.

Transport Commissioner Adina Valean said: "We are massively increasing funds available for deployment of alternative fuels infrastructure, to €1.5 billion. For the first time, we are also supporting projects so that our trans-European transport networks are suitable for civilian-defence dual-use and improve military mobility across the EU. Projects funded under yesterday's call will contribute to the creation of an efficient and interconnected multimodal transport system for both passengers and freight, and the development of infrastructure to support more sustainable mobility choices."

The EU needs an efficient and interconnected multimodal transport system for both passengers and freight.

This must include an affordable, high-speed rail network, abundant recharging and refuelling infrastructure for zero-emission vehicles, and increased automation for greater efficiency and safety. Further information is available online.
