Priority Project 22 (Railway axis Athina-Sofia-Budapest-Wien-Praha-Nürnberg/Dresden) links the Eastern Member States of the enlarged EU through a major railway axis. Its completion will improve connectivity between all national networks on the basis of common standards.
The Action concerns the section Athens-Thessaloniki-Promachon-Kulata-Sofia-Vidin-Calafat-Craiova-Timisoara-Curtici-Lokoshaza-Budapest-Gyor-Hegyeshalom. Part of the Action involves an assessment study for the entire length of section (Phase A) to establish common standards. This is followed by detailed technical studies in all four participating Member States under the Phase B.
State of progress on 31 December 2012:
The Phase A assessment study was completed and its results were distributed to the individual co-beneficiaries in order to be reflected within the Phase B studies. Phase B of the Action is ongoing.
