Press Release: L’Union Européenne investit pour une mobilité propre et rapide en Pologne

97,5 millions d’euros du Fonds européen de développement régional (FEDER) sont investis dans la modernisation de la connexion ferroviaire entre les villes de Poznań et Pila, dans la région Wielkopolska au centre-Ouest du pays. Les trains circulant sur la section rénovée pourront désormais rouler à une vitesse de de 80 à 120 km/h, ce qui permettra de réduire de près de 50 minutes le trajet entre les deux villes. La Commissaire à la politique régionale Corina Creţu a commenté: “De meilleures connexions ferroviaires sont essentielles à l’activité économique du pays. En réduisant les temps de trajet et en promouvant un mode de mobilité propre, ce projet améliorera aussi directement la qualité de vie des Polonais.” Les 250 000 habitants du Nord de la région pourront rejoindre plus rapidement Poznań, la capitale régionale, lorsque le projet sera achevé en 2020. Plus d’informations sur les fonds européens en Pologne sont disponibles sur la plateforme Open Data.(Pour plus d’informations: Johannes Bahrke – Tel.: +32 229 58615; Sophie Dupin de Saint-Cyr – Tel.: +32 229 56169)

Mid-term Results: Investing in European networks. The Connecting Europe Facility

The results clearly show that, at midterm, the CEF is already delivering on its promises and providing European added-value for the completion of the sectorial networks, facilitating synergies between them and leveraging private finance. So far, three and a half years on, the Commission has allocated €23.1 billion in grants (i.e. over 80% of the CEF grant budget) for projects in the three sectors, which have mobilised total investments of more than €45 billion. CEF-related financial instruments, including those under predecessor programmes, have generated additional investments in the three CEF sectors of €13.9 billion, out of which around €4.5 billion since 2014.
