News: The Port of Rotterdam has secured EUR5mn (US$6.2mn) from the EU programme for the Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T) for a rail terminal and inland shipping cranes at the new container terminals on Maasvlakte 2. A study into a new rail corridor between Rotterdam and Warsaw will also receive EUR300,000 (US$369,189) from Brussels. A total of EUR30mn (US$36.9mn) will be granted to the Netherlands for nine projects, including the planned sea lock in the Ghent-Terneuzen Canal.
