Enhancement of spatial and transport planning capacities in the promotion of the accessibility of the rail freight transport network and regional development

Putting freight on rail

To reduce carbon emissions, more goods need to be moved by rail. But currently, most freight is still transported on central Europe’s roads due to rail infrastructure gaps that reduce competitiveness. The Rail4Regions project helps transport planners to integrate regional rail lines into European freight networks. The partners develop solutions to optimise regional rail lines and access points and create action plans to encourage the uptake of their solutions in regional development plans.
