The Federal Minister of Transport, Peter Ramsauer, today presented the final version of the 2011 - 2015 Framework Investment Plan for the federal transport infrastructure.
Over the past few months, the federal states have had an opportunity to comment on the draft presented by Mr Ramsauer on 15 December 2011. These comments have been carefully reviewed, taking into account the requirements for the network as a whole and current planning developments. Some of the changes proposed by the federal states have been included.
"The fact that the Federal Government will, in the years ahead, step up its investment in the renewal of the existing transport infrastructure met with great approval in the federal states. In addition, the federal states welcome the fact that we are establishing clear priorities and gearing the planning of upgrading and new construction schemes to requirements and the funding available."
The total level of investment in upgrading and new construction schemes launched, continued or completed during the period from 2011 to 2015 is 41.5 billion euros. The previous plan contained projects with investment totalling around 57 billion euros - although the level of budgetary resources available was considerably lower.
"Our framework investment plan is based on what is feasible. As a result, it is honest and transparent. However, it is also obvious that we are dealing with structural underfunding in the transport infrastructure sector. The federal states also made this clear in their comments. As far as the Federal Government is concerned, I will continue to lobby to ensure that more money is available for investment in transport infrastructure."
