Priority Project 22 (rail): from Nurnberg / Dresden to Constanta and Athens via Prague, Vienna, Budapest and Arad through the whole region (according to the Decision No 884/2004/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council amending Decision No trans-European transport network).The Priority Project 22 on the Romanian territory has a length of 80 km for the North Branch (to Constanta) and is split in sections which are in different stages of planning or under implementation.In the future TEN-T network the sections will be included in the core network. The scope of the works is to rehabilitate the existing railways lines up to the corridor standards, by ensuring the technical conditions for the traffic of the passenger trains at a speed of 160 km/h and of the freight trains at a speed of 120 km/h and to achieve the technical parameters set down in the international agreements AGC, AGTC, TER. ERTMS/ETCS Level 2 and the communications in the GSM-R system will be implemented.1692/96/EC on Community guidelines for the development of the The increase in the traffic speed of the freight and passenger trains has direct effects on the increase in the mobility in the area and contributes to the target Improved travel times for competitive railway passenger connections between major cities. Other benefits for the Danube Region are the supply of railway interoperability at European and regional level and the synergic multimodal effect of the possibility to connect the railway sections to the Danube River.
