Accessibility of outermost regions

Study on the physical accessibility of the Outermost Regions

The objective of the study is to provide a list of the most needed future transport projects to significantly improve the connectivity of the Outermost Regions (i.e., ORs) of France, Spain and Portugal.


The study aims at identifying the physical disadvantages, bottlenecks and missing links of the ORs. This comprehensive analysis is needed for the TEN-T policy to ensure connectivity to all European regions by 2050. The study provides a comprehensive information base of the current transport conditions of the ORs and a proposition of well-justified actions to improve the overall physical connectivity.

The identified list of transport infrastructures and links, covering air and maritime modes also indicates the possible source of funding, budget and relevant stakeholders to be involved.
