Out of that, €50m is reserved for deploying European Rail Traffic Management System (ERTMS) and €20m for secure and safe infrastructure.

The remaining funds include €20m for Intelligent Transport Services for road (ITS), €20m for Single European Sky – SESAR, €30m for the sea motorways and €110m for transport infrastructure for different areas of the Core Network.

Transport Commissioner Violeta Bulc said: “To accelerate decarbonisation and contribute to the completion of the Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T), we are making full use of the resources available through the Connecting Europe Facility.

“These investments will support smart and sustainable mobility and better connect our citizens across Europe.”
