The Channel Tunnel is the most talked-about development, but in every sphere the European Community is actively supporting improvements in the transport infrastructure.
Transport in the European Community is undergoing a new revolution. The completion of the Channel Tunnel and a network of high-speed railways, the expansion of the road system, and the improvement of urban transport systems are all set to make a profound impact. The Community is actively involved in supporting improvements both in northern and southern Europe, in projects which represent a major investment of interest both to private-sector developers and to public administrators. This volume explains the involvement of the EC institutions in these matters, and how the Community's transport policy might develop in the future. Key EC policy documents are summarised, and full details of all the relevant official material is given. This comprehensive and up-to-date guide will be invaluable to all those concerned with the future of transport, either as consumers or as suppliers of systems and infrastructure.
