Good navigation status

hover

One of the objectives of the Trans‐European Transport Network (TEN‐T) is to ensure that European waterways are well integrated in the European transport system, promoting as much as possible inland navigation as a sustainable transport mode.

The TEN‐T Guidelines stipulate that, by 2030, navigable waterways of European interest have to achieve "good navigation status (GNS)". This means that these waterways have to help in reaching the full potential of inland navigation in Europe. However, the TEN‐T Guidelines do not provide a definition for "good navigation status".

The European Commission asked a consortium of viadonau, departement Mobiliteit en Openbare Werken Vlaanderen, STC-Nestra, Planco and INE to define the "Good Navigation Status" concept together with the member states, river commissions and users before the end of 2017. 

The Naiades expert group has a dedicated subgroup to finalise the definition of "good navigation status (GNS)" in view of the review of the EU TEN-T Guidelines.
