Call for proposals TEN-T Priority Project No 21 — Motorways of the Sea 2010 TEN-T MoS Closed!


Project proposals should focus on the facilities and infrastructure that constitute the network of Motorways of the Sea in the framework of a door-to-door concept. They may also include study parts preparing for the implementation of later phases of the projects. The proposed projects should reduce road congestion through modal shift and/or increase accessibility of peripheral and island regions. Once implemented, they should become constituent elements of the broader Motorways of the Sea network for theregion concerned and for the European  Union.


The aim of the TEN-T MoS network is to promote the general sustainability and safety of transport by providing an alternative to congested or less environmentally-friendly land transport. It should contribute to the common effort addressing climate change. Also, it should strengthen the cohesion of the EU by facilitating connections between Member States and between European regions, and by revitalising peripheral regions.
