of Corridor Developments, TEN Improvements and Extensions
of the CEEC/CIS
The general aim of the
CODE-TEN project is to assist with decision-making in the complex
environment of contemporary transport geography characterised by the new
concept of 'corridor'. It applies the scenario approach in order to
elaborate consistent ‘images’ of the future that combine information
on the socio-economic development, policy development and infrastructure
planning; These are in turn subjected to impact assessment in order to
reveal the effects or consequences of specific strategies.
aims of CODE-TEN are:
Elaborate scenarios for
future development of CEEC/CIS countries affecting transport demand
- Economy, Integration, Population & Policy Strategy
Develop a methodology
for the assessment of transport policy and large-scale projects
Make recommendations for
Scenario development –
Development of scenarios till the year 2015 for socio-economic
development, integration and policy developments.
Transport Information system
– Development of a comprehensive information system on a CD-ROM on 30
European countries providing information on politics, regionalised
socio-economic data, regionalised road information, foreign trade,
transport costs – behavioural and resource costs, networks and maps.
In-depth corridor studies

the Lisbon-Madrid-Paris trans-European link.
infrastructure strategies based on priorities developed by combining the
policy performance of projects with the degree of adaptability of
projects to the national policy goals.
Traffic flow estimations and
assignments based on the development of the various scenarios and
corridors till the year 2015.
Impact assessment of the
various corridor development alternatives on accessibility, environment
and socio-economic factors.
