More than eleven billion euros for 2010
S o the 2010 budget has more than eleven billion euros available for transport investments. In addition to 9.8 billion in regular budget funds, additional funds from the economic stimulus program have an impact. For 2011, the financial plan envisages transport investments of ten billion euros and around 9.8 billion euros each for the following years 2012 and 2013.
'This will keep investments in the transport infrastructure at a high level.' At the same time, the Federal Ministry of Transport confirmed that it is thinking of allowing the toll to flow through a financing company for the promotion of the transport infrastructure (VIFG). The funds should then only be used for road construction and no longer partially also for the construction of rails and waterways. But then, according to the ministry, 'we will have to investigate how the other modes of transport could be financed.'
