The entire European Union faces enormous challenges as a result of its expansion. These challenges become apparent through necessary expansion projects in the transport network sector. In order to meet the expectations of increased demand in the tourism sector as well as the growing import and export trade, the development of a trans-European transport system is of crucial importance.
In 2020, the trans-European transport system will cover 89,500 km of roads and 94,000 km of railways while the number of airports will increase up to approx. 400.
The European Union supports the transportation area and logistics sector through corresponding grants. By means of providing grants, the European Union endeavours to contribute significantly to the improvementof growth potential within the Euopean Community.
