21 Jan Court of Auditors on investments in transport infrastructure
The European Court of Auditors has published its “landscape review” on transport infrastructure, suggesting that “reduced investment in transport infrastructure has held back the modernisation of the EU’s transport network, according to a new landscape review by the European Court of Auditors. The auditors found the EU had made progress in infrastructure development and the opening of the internal transport market, but they warn the EU needs to address six key challenges on the road towards improved mobility within the Union. These include matching objectives and priorities with resources, better planning, infrastructure maintenance, effective enforcement, shifting goods traffic off roads and ensuring EU added value“.
