Webinar: How to improve the efficiency of the transport system in urban nodes of the TEN-T core network

8 December 2016, 10:00 – 11:30CET

The webinar is organised in the framework of the study “Improving the efficiency of the transport system in urban nodes of the TEN-T core network”, which was carried out on behalf of DG MOVE. The 88 urban nodes are often the starting point or the final destination ("first” and “last mile") for passengers and freight moving. From the TEN-T perspective, the main aim is to remove urban bottlenecks and missing physical, technical and organisational links on the infrastructure. The main challenge for urban nodes is to improve multi-modal connections and at the same time consider connections with local and regional transport to ensure smooth first and last miles in passengers’ and freight transport. The new TEN-T policy, formulated in the TEN-T Guidelines (2013), is no longer perceived as merely a funding instrument for major infrastructure projects, but a policy which takes the network holistic planning approach as the main pillar.

 

Piotr Rapacz from the European Commission (DG MOVE) will present the role of urban nodes in the TEN-T core network and the European transport policy that impacts them. Furthermore, Tina Laparidou, senior consultant at Panteia (the Netherlands) will show how to select, assess and prioritise the most efficient transport measures or packages of measures related to the TEN-T core network and how do those impact the mobility planning in an urban node. She will explain a pre-defined impact assessment methodology which is able to identify and to compare cost-effective transport measures on the urban node level. The methodology was designed in the framework of the study as a stepwise approach, combining the advantages of the most intensively used appraisal methods available for transport and urban projects: cost-benefit analysis and multi-criteria appraisal. The webinar will be concluded by Susanne Böhler-Baedeker from Rupprecht Consult (Germany) who will recommend to urban nodes how to make best use of their role in the TEN-T network and what opportunities arise for them in the new policy phase.
