The Community of European Railway and Infrastructure Companies (CER) is pleased to present its new publications:
In its Vision, CER calls for policy initiatives that facilitate growth and business development in the rail sector on the basis of substantial and rapid infrastructure investments where positive business cases exist, covering both maintenance and renewal needs, and upgrade and new build priorities; of strong and fair price signals within and between transport modes; and of business-friendly support measures to aid the emergence of new infrastructure and new services. A stable legal framework, applied in a consistent manner, is a crucial basis for investment and new business development.
CER calls for the following three-tier approach for the railway sector:
- Stabilise the legislative framework for the railway market
- Pursue a pro-growth agenda for the railway sector
- Develop a new inter-modal strategy for transport
