Reason for drawing up an information report.
The policy evaluation upon request from the European Commission will focus on the achievements and goals of the TEN-T policy and how this policy contributes to a better transport infrastructure, smooth traffic flow, less congestion, an efficient public transport system and the creation of jobs.
The assessment will allow the EESC to take stock and inform other EU institutions of the appraisal, criticism, concerns, demands and challenges expressed by the organisations represented within the EESC, other civil society organisations and stakeholders.
The assessment exercise is in line with the priorities of the Committee expressed for the Transport sector, namely to evaluate the impact of the Transport policies from the perspective of civil society organisations.
The work done by the EESC on the topic of TEN-T shows that there are important social and economic issues linked with TEN-T policy for which civil society needs to have an input.
In addition to two study group meetings, the assessment will include five fact-finding missions that gather information from civil society organisations on the ground.
