In the UK, the degree of market opening in passenger rail is the highest across the whole EU (89.7%). In the rail freight sector, the share of competitors is 54.5%, the third highest in the EU. The UK recorded an average number of court cases for alleged infringements of EU law in the transport sector at the end of July 2015. Its score for the transposition of EU directives in transport into national law has gone down slightly. The employment share in high growth enterprises is clearly above EU average and growing.
