The TEN-T corridor Orient/ East-Med connects Central and South-East Europe. A crucial bottleneck of emerging relevance is the Dresden-Prague section, which needs to be extended by a new railway line to improve the connectivity between German seaports and destinations in particular in the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Austria and Hungary.

To capitalise the opportunities of the infrastructure investment for multi-modal environmentally friendly freight, the Free State of Saxony teamed up with partners from Germany, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary. Realizing activities aimed at better coordination among stakeholders in the field of transport and spatial planning, the partners will contribute to the creation of an environment for more efficient rail freight in Central Europe.

To achieve the objectives of the project the partners will develop “Corridor Capitalisation Plans” to facilitate the interaction of regional development and transport infrastructure development. These plans, which will have a planning horizon corresponding to the perspective of realization of the new railway line Dresden-Prague, will demonstrate how an intensively used corridor affects regional development and logistics, and which contributions made on regional level will strengthen the corridor and its functionality.

As informal instrument, “Corridor Capitalisation Plans” address existing planning levels and instruments in the field of transport and logistics, regional development and spatial planning on local, regional, national and transnational (partly macroregional) level, thus contributing to multi-level governance.
