DG MOVE has opened a public consultation aimed at gathering the input of the general public and stakeholders as regards the main problems and proposed solutions for facilitating the implementation of the TEN-T projects.
The consultation addresses experience with the implementation of the TEN-T projects showing that their effective implementation might be impacted by complex regulatory and administrative arrangements. This, in certain cases, might contribute to increased costs, delays and uncertainty. The complexity of procedures sometimes stems from unclear or contradictory requirements or processes which result in duplication of efforts. In addition, imprecise legislation or regulatory framework can lead to sub-optimal investment decisions (e.g. in-house investments versus public private partnership), while legal uncertainty can deter private investment in projects.
