The Atlantic Cities network has participated in the Public Consultation based on Regulation (EU) No 1315/2013 on the EU guidelines for the development of the Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T).
This consultation aims to assess compliance with the provisions of the TEN-T, progress in implementation, changes in passenger and freight flows, developments in national investments in transport infrastructure, and the need for amendments.
Atlantic Cities in its position as an expert entity in European cooperation, the Metropole de Brest as a Public Authority and the Port of La Rochelle participated in this initiative by answering the questionnaire proposed by the European Commission.
As a result, the Atlantic Cities propose a re-planning of the Atlantic Corridor, both to ensure true connectivity with the Atlantic Ocean and to compensate for the Brexit effect.
On the other hand, the association calls for improved connections between cities, allowing the movement from one city to another city on the same day in response to the need to better integrate territorial development (regional policy) with the citizen dimension.
In Atlantic Cities we believe that this consultation opens the door to dialogue and we will continue to participate in future discussions related to the future of the TEN-T and the requests for integration of some ports in the nucleus.
