Rail transport: speeding up trans-European priority axes and ERTMS (introduction)

202 views

The EU sees the rail as a good alternative to ease the traffic on its overburdened roads. That’s why the EU wants to give a boost to major trans-European railway projects. Five key railway axes, as well as one key "technical" project ERTMS (European Rail Traffic Management System) have been identified, where progress is not being made quickly enough due to difficulties of various kinds. To give impetus to these priority projects, the European Union has appointed important public figures to serve as European coordinators for the different axes. Their assignment is to bring the Member States involved together to come up with solutions to the problems and to speed up project execution. We release a series of 7 short video reports to highlight the status of the works on the 5 priority railway axes and some insights into the ERTMS. The videos also include interviews with Vice-President of the Commission Jacques Barrot and the six high profile coordinators appointed by the European Commission.
