Public consultation launched on the future of transport (01/07/2020)

Ever since the invention of the wheel, transport and mobility have played a vital role in the everyday lives of people and businesses. European transport policy is designed to meet their needs while minimising impacts on climate change and ensuring Europe reaps the benefits of digitisation. How can the EU best achieve these multiple aims? The European Commission is working on a comprehensive Strategy for a Sustainable and Smart Mobility. This Strategy has been announced as part of the European Green Deal and is scheduled for release before the end of 2020. The European Commission has launched this consultation to allow both stakeholders and citizens to comment and identify their priorities. This will enable the Commission to better understand how the EU can help the sector become more sustainable and competitive, more modern and resilient to crises. Consultation open until 23 SeptemberFurther info and feedback submission


Preliminary road safey figures for 2019: Europe's roads are getting safer but progress remains too slow (11/06/2020)

The European Commission published the 2019 figures of the road deaths (per million inhabitants), with -2% change 2018-2019. In the presentation of the figures Commissioner for Transport Adina Vălean mentioned: "No deaths and serious injuries on European roads by 2050. This is our goal. We aim at 50% fewer deaths, and 50% fewer serious injuries by 2030, and we know our target is achievable. The EU has seen a substantial decrease in road fatalities in the past, but stagnating figures in recent years. In addition, disparities among countries remain huge. We will reach our goal only through a combination of legislative measures, adequate funding, standards for vehicles and infrastructure, digitalization, and best practices exchange." Read more
