Mediterranean Corridor missing its completion deadline

Question écrite de M. Carles PUIGDEMONT I CASAMAJÓ - Commission européenne


Subject: Mediterranean Corridor missing its completion deadline

Regulation (EU) No 1315/2013 on Union guidelines for the development of the trans-European transport network (‘TEN-T Regulation’)1 sets out the priorities for the completion of the trans- European transport network and provides for measures for its implementation.

In a recent parliamentary Q&A with senators, the Spanish Minister for Transport could not say whether the Mediterranean Corridor would be completed by 20302. He was only able to mention that they have started the bidding process at EUR 12 million, to connect the port of Barcelona to the network. This adds further concerns about meeting the construction deadlines for the Mediterranean Corridor.

Currently, the Connecting Europe Facility co-finances 115 projects in Spain with an EU contribution of EUR 843 million, which translates into an overall investment of EUR 2.6 billion. Many of these investments belong to the Mediterranean Core Network Corridor, concentrated in particular in sections between Barcelona, Tarragona and Valencia. Despite this, there are still important bottlenecks and slow progress on the Mediterranean Corridor.

1. Will the Commission trigger Article 56 of Regulation (EU) No 1315/20133if the Mediterranean corridor is not completed on time?

2. What measures is the Mediterranean Corridor Coordinator taking to ensure that it will be completed by 2030?

Answer given by Ms Vălean on behalf of the European Commission

(25 April 2024)

The Commission would like to refer the Honourable Members to the reply provided to Question E-000422/2024. As explained in the reply, the European Coordinator for the Mediterranean TEN-T (trans-European transport network) Core Network Corridor monitors progress of the works and acts as a facilitator to promote the implementation of projects.

The main developments on the corridor are explained in the Corridor’s Work Plan (4). The transport sections that require further attention and acceleration in terms of planning are highlighted in this document.

The Member States, including Spain, are expected to complete the sections of the TEN-T core network by 2030, in line with the standards set out in the TEN-T Regulation (5).

The Commission considers that substantial efforts are made by Spain to realise the TEN-T network. Six years remain for the completion of the core network in compliance with the TEN-T standards.

At this moment, the Commission does not envisage to trigger Article 56 of the regulation (EU) 1315/2013 (6).
