This blog presents alignment proposals for new transport infrastructure in Europe. Detailed engineering and planning studies would always be necessary, before any of these projects are built. In a few cases, there are specific problems with terrain or geology, which might hinder construction – and that is indicated in each case.
Costs are simply ignored. Expenditure on infrastructure is a political decision, not a technical issue. The infrastructure proposed here, does not require economic or technical miracles. In less developed regions, projects would require transfer payments, for instance from a European infrastructure fund. Infrastructure is expensive, and it always was – but the Gross Domestic Product of the European Union is also very large.
