Transport: EU Action

Volume 475: debated on Monday 28 April 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport how much the Trans-European transport networks will cost; and what the UK's contribution will be. (200525)

The 2007 TEN Financing Regulation estimates the cost of completing the Trans-European transport network between 2007 and 2020 will be €600 billion. This includes investment from both public and private sources, as well as public-private partnerships.

There is no specific UK contribution to the programme. The UK makes its contributions to the EC budget as a whole and not to individual spending programmes within it.
