Workshop on preparation of comprehensive transport plans and action plans


A workshop on the preparation of comprehensive transport plans and action plans was held in Brussels on October 9th 2014.


The meeting was attended by 60 participants from Member States' authorities, representatives of the European Commission and JASPERS partners.   




The JASPERS Networking Platform was created to complement JASPERS project advisory operations by implementing knowledge sharing and targeted capacity building activities, as well as fostering dissemination of good practices and exchange of experiences among JASPERS Stakeholders. 


The Networking Platform is open to relevant authorities from all EU Member States, as well as pre-accession Countries.


The workshop focused on the preparation of comprehensive transport plans, starting with an overview by DG REGIO on current requirements and available official guidance document. Joint presentations by some Member States and JASPERS experts focused on the main concrete challenges and obstacles encountered in developing transport plans and on how these have been addressed with JASPERS support.


Two JASPERS working papers were produced to support these activities and were presented in details during the workshop: 

a) Methodological support to the preparation of National and Regional Transport Plans, and

b) The Use of Transport Models in Transport Planning and Project Appraisal




Participants were also introduced to the details of the preparation of transport action plans, which describes the programme of activities to fully meet the thematic ex-ante conditionality by the deadline of 31 December 2016.  


The workshop was targeted to representatives from Members States' managing authorities, line ministries and beneficiaries that are in charge of transport programmes to be co-financed under the EU Structural and Investment funds (ESIF) and, in particular, those involved in the area of strategic planning.


The seminar was very well received by the participants, who provided positive feedback on the timing of the initiative and relevance of the topics addressed, and expressed a strong interest in follow-up events and capacity building activities.
