”Member States are free to suggest or sketch out these corridors themselves. Our proposal is intended to make the railway infrastructure a more attractive option for long-distance freight transport across Europe,’ said Antonio Tajani, Commission Vice-President responsible for transport.

The development of rail freight is a key issue for transport in Europe, as rail transport creates little pollution and could be a competitive alternative to transport by road. The Commission’s ambition is to increase the proportion of goods transported by rail by encouraging the creation of corridors along which conditions for freight transport can be significantly better than is the case currently.

In particular, the corridors linking the Member States will make it possible to: integrate national infrastructures, respond better to rail freight operators’ requirements, manage effectively those infrastructures that are used by passenger and goods trains and ensure better connections between the rail infrastructure and other modes of transport.
