Infrastructure charging in land transport: Challenges and way forward

Infrastructure charging in European land transport is a very crucial matter to develop a multimodal transport system based on fair competition within and among each transport mode.

Do the Commission's recent 'Eurovignette' proposals on road charging reach far enough to promote fair competition and efficient charging in land transport, or should the European Parliament and the Council raise the level of ambition? What can Member States do to achieve smarter charging and raise revenue efficiently? How can transport infrastructure charging help Europe to meet its climate commitments and foster sustainable growth?

On Wednesday 27 September 2017, the Community of European Railway and Infrastructure Companies (CER), the European Association of Operators of Toll Road Infrastructures (ASECAP) and the European Union Road Federation (ERF) will put these questions to a panel of EU policymakers and sector representatives during a high-level debate. This event is kindly supported by the Estonian Presidency of the EU.

The event will be held in Brussels (Leopold Hotel, 35 rue du Luxembourg)
