Priority question for written answer  P-001850/2021
to the Commission
Rule 138
Eleonora Evi (Verts/ALE)
 Subject: Eligibility of projects such as the electrification of the Como-Lecco railway line for support from the Recovery Fund

The Recovery and Resilience Facility, established by Regulation (EU) 2021/241(1), aims to finance smart, sustainable and inclusive growth by promoting, inter alia, the development of sustainable infrastructure and transport.

Electrification of the railway line between Como and Lecco would enhance sustainable local and regional transport, including towards Switzerland, particularly for the many commuters that would use it. The operator Rete Ferroviaria Italiana has just drawn up a pre-feasibility study in this regard.

Given that doubts have been raised as to the eligibility of investment projects for which a final plan is not yet available, in the context of the procedure for assessing the national recovery and resilience plans (NRRPs) referred to in Article 19 of the Regulation, will the Commission:

1. give a negative assessment of NRRPs that include projects which are not at an advanced stage of technical/economic feasibility planning;

2. give a negative assessment of NRRPs that include infrastructure investment projects to be completed after 31 August 2026(2);

3. give a positive assessment of NRRPs that favour investment in the regional road and motorway network rather than in strengthening the rail network?

(1)Regulation (EU) 2021/241 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 12 February 2021 establishing the Recovery and Resilience Facility.
(2)Article 18(4)(i) of the above-mentioned regulation.
