  • CEDR-EIM Joint Position Paper on Financing Infrastructure upgrading & renewals and common definitions

    Position Papers


    01-04-19 - Ageing infrastructure is a major challenge and concern in Europe. The European cities are some of the oldest on the planet- many roads and railway lines were designed and built in the 19th century, much of the upgrading of the network took place during the 1960s and 1970s and many of the critical sections are currently at the end of their life cycle with a number beyond their initial lifetime expectations. The Infrastructure Managers of CEDR and EIM are committed in renewing, upgrading and maintaining existing infrastructure in order to maintain high levels of safety and high-quality services and to have seamless connections with newly-built infrastructure. Renewing and upgrading the infrastructure will bring significant gains in terms of performance, safety, interoperability, capacity increase and positive effects to the environment.
