Posted at 19:25h in News and Press Releases 0 Comments
The Council has reached with the European Parliament an informal political agreement on Eurovignette directive on 16 June. It is confirmed that this will contain the abolition of time-based vignettes for commercial vehicles and their phasing out with a distance-based system, which UETR supported.
However, UETR is disappointed that no compulsory earmarking principle is maintained in the agreement, for reinvestment in road transport and infrastructure.
