4th Railway Package, Political pillar : A missed opportunity

19-04-16

On the 19th of April, the Council and the European Parliament agreed on a final version of the 4th Railway Package. The result is far removed from the European Commission’s initial ambition for reforming rail. There are only limited progress in achieving a competitive, sustainable and growth-rail sector. The real winners from yesterday’s agreement are the other more polluting modes of transport, led notably by the road sector, who continue to make market gains where rail refuses to reform.
