NAME OF PROJECT: TRANSPYRENAEI RAIL (MPII-2013/051)

ACRONYM: TPNOVA TRANSPYRENAEI

EUROPEAN PROGRAMME: Marco Polo II 2013. Currently within Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) for Transport Programme

ROLE OF THE TARRAGONA PORT AUTHORITY: Partner

DURATION: 8 January 2014 - 5 February 2016

BUDGET: 13.876.858 €

The aims of this Project are:

- Extend the current Tarragona-Barcelona service to reach Perpignan.

- Permit a modal change for more rail networks toward the rest of Europe (France, Germany, Benelux, etc.).

- Achieve a modal change from road to rail in the transport of goods between Spain and France in order to strengthen and guarantee the supply chain avoiding over-saturated road transport routes and to establish an annual fee, which in turn guarantees cost stability and avoids the constant increases in fuel taxes, motorway fees, etc.

- Consolidate the HUB of the Ports of Barcelona and Tarragona as a Logistics Platform for Southern Europe and as an entrance for Asian goods.
