  • Rail money should be used for rail, not roads, says MEP

    A leading MEP has asked the Commission to stop Poland spending €1.2 billion of cohesion fund money on roads which has been given for improving rail transport.

    [mailchimp_signup][/mailchimp_signup]Brian Simpson, who chairs the European Parliament’s transport committee, has written to Siim Kallas saying Poland’s plans to use the rail money for road investment go against the priorities agreed with the EU. He also says it widens the gap between road and rail, as road transport gets nearly twice as much money from the cohesion funds as rail.
