The article focuses on the criticisms issued by the European Court of Auditors against the European Commission's procedures and handling of the trans-European network for transport projects. The court's audit found several priority projects are behind schedule and that cross-border sections in particular are facing major difficulties. According to the court, project monitoring should be strengthened and the Commission should consider returning to a centralized form of project management.
