Abstract
The article discusses the manner in which tracing, designing and implementing trans-continental meridian transport corridors and axes could facilitate the development of peripheral and marginalized EU regions. We do so after relating the issue of integral connectivity to the framework of a process referred to as re-continentalisation (or, sub-recontintalisation with reference to the European Union).

It presents a vision about better transport connectivity between countries in the eastern part of the EU, and between Bulgaria and Romania in particular. The article states that after their meaningful integration, the specific transport corridors, axes, sub-axes and connectors become an essential tool for the joint (economic, social and environmental) development of some less-developed regions in those countries.

It also identifies specific tools for the conceptualization and development of the EU Road Transport Grid, as well as some ideas and visual models about trans-national meridian transport corridors.
