Transport and Tourism Committee

ABOUT THE COMMITTEE

The European Parliament’s Transport and Tourism Committee promotes effective cross-EU transport networks. It also has oversight for tourism policies in the EU, although we believe these are primarily a matter for national governments.

MAIN ECR PRIORITIES

Improved transport networks

The ECR Group believes that the EU must continue to develop a comprehensive multimodal EU transport network, inter alia, addressing key issues such as the lack of appropriate infrastructure, accessibility and a low interoperability between the Eastern and Western parts of the EU. The ECR Group stresses that the specific needs of regional airports and air services should be addressed in future EU legislation so that that these proposals deliver the best deal for both this sector of the industry and the passengers.

Towards a single market for transport

The ECR Group emphasises the necessity for a fully liberalised market for all modes of transport ensuring and guaranteeing the free movement of goods and services, with clear and easily enforceable rules for free and fair competition, along with reduced administrative burdens for SMEs. We believe it is of vital importance to speed up both the implementation of the Single European Sky and of the Joint Undertaking to develop the new generation of European air traffic management system. ECR MEPs strongly support the completion of the single European railway area and rail market liberalisation across borders, including greater clarity on the separation of railway operations and infrastructure.

The ECR Group believes that the EU must continue to develop a comprehensive multimodal EU transport network, inter alia, addressing key issues such as the lack of appropriate infrastructure, accessibility and a low interoperability between the Eastern and Western parts of the EU. The so-called Trans-European Transport Networks (TEN-T) policy, financed via the Connecting Europe Facility, must better prioritise European investment in aviation, rail, road, maritime and inland waterways, primarily targeting cross-border sections and missing links.
