About the proposals

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.
