The European Committee of the Regions (CoR) will draft an opinion on the "Guidelines for the development of the trans-European transport network (TEN-T)". In this regard, on Tuesday 3 May 2022, Mrs Isabelle Boudineau (FR/PES) Member of the Regional Council of Nouvelle-Aquitaine, rapporteur for the opinion, is inviting relevant stakeholders to a consultation to gather their position on the subject.

The basis for the consultation will be the rapporteur’s working document. The discussion will be very interactive and will mainly focus on the stakeholders' contributions and presentations of their positions on the subject.

The topic was discussed by the rapporteur, the CoR Members and the European Commission at the COTER meeting of 7 April 2022 and the draft opinion will be adopted at the COTER meeting on 12 July 2022. The adoption of the opinion at the CoR Plenary is foreseen for 12-13 October 2022.

It is possible to send any position papers or written contributions relevant to the subject as soon as possible by email to the CoR COTER Secretariat coter@cor.europa.eu

The TEN-T is the backbone of territorial cohesion and therefore it is a key area for the European Committee of the Region's political work. The current Guidelines date back to 2013 and need to be adapted to address decarbonisation, pollution reduction, digitalisation, resilience and safety of the transport infrastructure system by updating the existing TEN-T infrastructure quality requirements and standards.
 
Regions and cities, as multimodal hubs allowing for regional, national and international connections, must play a key player by enabling the development of innovative modal and infrastructural solutions for low-carbon mobility through a multi-level governance approach towards the trans-European transport infrastructure development.
