The European Commission’s Directorate-General for Mobility and Transport (DG MOVE) has contracted a team of independent evaluators to undertake a comprehensive evaluation of Regulation (EU) No 1315/2013 on Union guidelines for the development of the trans-European transport (TEN-T) network.

The study will provide the Commission with an independent evidence-based evaluation of the implementation of the TEN-T Guidelines. Based on the results and conclusions of the evaluation, the Commission intends to take concrete steps related to a possible revision of the guidelines in the framework of the European Green Deal. The attached letter from DG MOVE gives more information about the official nature and importance of the assignment.

The evaluation comprises several types of research, including a desk-based review of existing literature (including related legislation and policy documentation) and data as well as targeted consultations to collect data from specific stakeholder groups at local, national and EU level.

This survey forms an important part of the assessment and asks questions about your awareness, perceptions and experiences of the TEN-T Guidelines, their implementation and outcomes to date, as well as your views on recommendations for future EU policy developments in this area. These data will feed into our responses to the evaluation questions and assessment of the relevance, effectiveness, efficiency, coherence and EU added value of the guidelines. For these reasons, your help is vital to the evaluation and to DG MOVE.

On our side, we have tried to keep the questionnaire as short and easy to complete as possible, with mainly multiple-choice questions. There are also some open questions, where you are kindly invited to give more detailed explanations and suggestions on specific issues that are of particular interest / importance to you. Responses to the open questions can be provided in English or in other EU languages. At the end of the survey, you may also express your interest in being contacted for an interview.

This survey is designed to support the evaluation of the current TEN-T Regulation and contains six core sections:

Relevance of the Regulation Effectiveness of the Regulation Efficiency of the Regulation Coherence of the Regulation EU-Added value of the Regulation Additional feedback on the overall strengths and weaknesses of the Regulation

Note that all information provided will be kept confidential, reported in aggregated form and only used for the purposes of the evaluation.

Thank you very much for your valuable feedback and support.
