Since the expansion of Europe in 2004, the shape of Europe has changed and reliable transport networks need to be extended to central and eastern Europe, to facilitate complete acquisition into the life and trade of the European Community. Transport links need to be improved; this includes major Central European countries such as the Czech Republic and Hungary, and is necessary for the development of previously neglected economies in Romania, Slovenia and others amongst the smaller countries. However, in many cases, roads need repair, and other forms of transport are difficult to get to or underfunded. The Czech Republic and Slovenia lie at the very heart of Europe; making the topic of the European transport network an important one for anyone involved in, or needing links between east and western Europe, or interested in how this change will be planned, developed and funded

Following on from our 2004 conference on TEN-T, this conference will bring together key figures in the development of a transport network, this time focussing on the importance of Central and Eastern Europe. It will discuss funding, environment, charges for road users and other relevant topics, as well as political opinion and the latest updates from decision makers in the arena, and representatives from companies. It will bring together the plans and issues to show the ‘big picture’ of the strong, inter-modal network Europe is creating for freight and passenger use. It will provide the attendee with ample opportunity to network, discuss issues and ask questions with others involved in the field.
