The run-up to this autumn’s proposed review of the EU’s Common Transport Policy seems to be creating a wave of nostalgia for outdated and discredited transport thinking. Last month, an advertisement appeared in the European Voice newspaper from an MEP of the European People’s Party and an organisation calling itself the “Taxpayers Association of Europe”. This appears to be a grouping of pro-road interests, as it calls for two central objectives of the current CTP to be abandoned: modal shift from road to rail and the decoupling of transport growth from economic growth.
T&E has written to the EU transport commissioner Jacques Barrot expressing concern at statements he made last month suggesting that decoupling economic growth from transport growth could endanger the Lisbon strategy on economic competitiveness.
