Strategic Assessment of Corridor Developments, TEN Improvements and Extensions to the CEEC/CIS

Objective

The general aim of the CODE-TEN project is to assist with decision-making in the complex environment of contemporary transport geography characterised by the new concept of 'corridor'. It will provide a comprehensive strategic assessment methodology that can apply to corridors and will seek to identify and present major policy-related issues and the associated scenarios and assumptions in a consistent way.
%
The specific objectives of the study will be: (a) To compile policy-relevant information and data on transport corridor and TEN developments (including extensions to the CEEC/CIS) in a longer-term perspective; (b) using this information to update, correct and elaborate existing scenarios on infrastructure development and transport policy scenarios; elaborate comparable parameters concerning the spatial, temporal and socio-economic impacts of corridor developments in the greater European area under study; and to compile relevant (spatial) environmental impacts and indicators; (c) subsequently, to define a comprehensive methodology to be used for the assessment of transport policies and larger projects, namely networks and corridors, and which is compatible with SEA; (d) on the basis of the application of this methodology, to define and develop policy assistance tools (presented in a report/manual and an interactive computer programme) for assessing interactions between policy instruments and corridor/network developments.
