Aided by investigation and analysis of European maritime policies and ongoing transport network developments, this paper redefines maritime transport infrastructure as the ships themselves rather than just the ports at each end. It argues that the seaway platform, namely the floating deck of a vessel, is comparable in a functional sense with road and rail infrastructure. This new interpretation could result in a more equitable approach to policy-making, public funding and user charging for maritime transport.
