1 Rémi Mayet European Commission DG MOVE



4 In 2004 it was estimated that to complete the 30 priority axis by 2020 €225 billion is needed, however the latest estimates show that the total cost will be around €251 billion. The finalisation of the whole TEN – T network by 2020 would cost €600 billion On the other hand for the period 2007 – 2013 only €8 billion is allocated to the TEN – T out of the TEN budget. The consequence is that: There is a need to look for alternative ways of financing the other TEN – T infrastructure: Structural (€ 24 billion for the period 2007 – 2013) and Cohesion Funds (€31 billion for TEN T in the period 2007 – 2013) European Investment Bank (about € 54 billion for the period 2007 – 2013) PPP: Two options: Covering of the revenue / demand risk: The Commission and EIB are working on a guarantee instrument that will provide security for standby credit facilities aimed at covering post construction risks during the early operational phase. The objective of this instrument would be reducing one of the main obstacles to private sector participation in transport infrastructure investments - low private sector appetite to assume initial traffic revenue risk. Covering Availability risk (availability of the service or the quality of the service). Note: total TEN budget about billion of which: 8.01 billion for TEN-T 115 million for TEN-E
