The report contains information on the progress of Agency-supported projects in the Atlantic Core Network Corridor.
The Atlantic Corridor connects Europe's South Western regions towards the centre of the EU linking the Iberian Peninsula's from the ports of Algeciras, Sines, Lisbon, Leixões and Bilbao, Western France to Paris and Normandy and further to the East to Strasbourg and Mannerheim. The corridor provides both inland and maritime connections between the Iberian Peninsula with France and Germany, crossing regions, which contribute for the 12% of the EU Gross Domestic Product.
The length of the Corridor accounts for more than 7,800 km of Core rail network, more than 4,400 km of Core road sections. It includes 8 Core ports, 7 Core airports, 10 Core Rail Road Terminals, 6 inland ports and 7 Core urban nodes. The corridor has an outstanding maritime dimension with a parallel connection of the inland modes as well as with seaports, ensuring thus the access to world trade routes.
