Conference on the development of the Genoa-Rotterdam priority rail axis n°24: signature of two declarations, group photo, speech by Antonio Tajani and trip on a boat

57 views

Antonio Tajani, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Transport, met on 26 May 2009 in Genoa with Ministers for Transport or their representatives from the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, France, Switzerland and Italy to push forward the priority rail axis between Rotterdam and Genoa. This north-south freight and passenger rail axis, known as the priority axis n°24, connects Lyon/Genoa - Basel - Duisburg - Rotterdam/Antwerp. The rail freight corridor A Rotterdam - Genoa is a major component of the priority axis n°24 and is expected to be one of the first among six major rail freight corridors to be equipped with the European rail traffic management system (ERTMS). The entire priority rail axis will use this experience when applying ERTMS for both conventional and high speed passenger rail transport, which in part uses the same infrastructure as freight. The conference was closed by the signature of two declarations. The first declaration sets long term objectives for priority rail axis n°24. The second declaration sets out a detailed ERTMS deployment plan along Corridor A and establishes the basis for an ambitious work programme, including noise reduction, optimisation of infrastructure usage and an improvement in the quality of services.
