How Green are the TEN-T Core Network Corridors?

'Green corridors' are a concept introduced by the European Commission to enhance the provision of sustainable freight transport logistics services by concentrating freight traffic between major hubs and by relatively long distances. SuperGreen, a Coordination and Support Action aiming at further defining this concept, identified the characteristics that distinguish a green corridor from an otherwise efficient one. The main thesis of this paper is that the 'core network corridors' of the new TEN-T guidelines exhibit all these qualities and the vision of a green corridor network in Europe is close to reality. To support this thesis, and in continuation of the work of SuperGreen, the paper examines the proposed new 'guidelines' for the development of the TEN-T after presenting a brief history of transport network development in Europe.
