UNIFE Position Paper on the Revision of the TEN-T Regulation

While the rail supply industry is fully supportive of the goals set in the Sustainable and Smart Mobility Strategy (SSMS), and the expected ambition to accelerate the realisation of the TEN-T with the new proposed targets and requirements, UNIFE is concerned by the negative impact the current regulatory instability (too frequent revision of Technical Specifications for Interoperability - TSIs) is having on rail projects, which creates serious risks on the economic viability of long-term investments in the sector. The proposed requirement for the TEN-T network to be compliant with the Rail Interoperability Directive implies in fact several upgrades between now and 2050.
