Improving the concept of Motorways of the Sea

The European Parliament has published a study on “Improving the concept of motorways of the sea” providing an overview of the Motorways of the Sea programme since its inception.

Unfortunately, this study shows that stakeholders are not sufficiently aware of this programme, there is a lack of continuity once the project funding has stopped and the cooperation between stakeholders is not always optimal.

These three factors combined with other barriers mean that the impact of the programme has been lower than one might expect. To this end, recommendations and possible scenarios for improving the concept of Motorways of the Sea have been formulated.
