transport policy

transport policy

one of the foundations of the EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES to provide a uniform system of transport by road, rail and waterway to prevent distortion of the market. There now exists a full range of measures supporting mobility. Billions of euros are spent on infrastructure. Trans-European Networks are being developed and indeed there is a desire to expand these beyond European boundaries. The desire to expand transport for reasons of economic and social cohesion is now being affected by the need to protect the environment. Local public transport is also a focus, again with a desire to promote sustainable development.
