The rapid development of high-speed rail (HSR) networks has been observed worldwide in recent years. The experience of states operating these systems demonstrates that they are setting new standards of quality and contributing to the renaissance of railway as a mode of transport. The development of an HSR network in the TER region would significantly improve the competitiveness of rail,
The construction and maintenance of road infrastructure is an important area of most countries’ national economies, but also one of the least digitized sub-sectors. It suffers from the presence of systemic shortcomings including an insufficient level of cooperation, inadequate information management, and limited investment in technology, research and development. These shortcomings often result
The Trans-European North-South Motorway (TEM) Project was initiated to facilitate road traffic in Central, Eastern and South-Eastern Europe and to assist with the process of integrating European transport infrastructure systems. One of the objectives of the Project is to improve the road network’s management. This report aims to provide TEM member countries with up-to-date information about how
The Trans-European North-South Motorway (TEM) Project was initiated to facilitate road traffic in Central, Eastern and South-Eastern Europe and to assist with the process of integrating European transport infrastructure systems. In order to improve the road network’s management, the Project provides TEM member countries with benchmarking of the current capacities of asset management, with up-to-
The pan-European recommendations for inland navigation vessels aim to establish a harmonized regime of technical requirements for vessels that transport goods and passengers internationally. The recommendations are the result of Government efforts to unify divergent regulations in force in different intergovernmental organizations and ECE member countries. The recommendations were first adopted
