Heavy goods vehicles transporting goods in Europe must comply with certain rules on weights and dimensions for road safety reasons. This legislative proposal aims to facilitate the use of more energy-efficient and safer trucks.

The Rapporteur will present his draft recommendation for second reading in the next TRAN Committee meeting on 29.01.15 from 10.30-10.50.

Improving the Concept of 'Motorways of the Sea'

Study on Motorways of the Sea

This study provides an overview of the Motorways of the Sea programme since its inception. On the basis of the research carried out, three principal barriers have been identified.
These barriers are as follows: 1) stakeholders are not sufficiently aware of the programme; 2) there is a lack of continuity once the project funding has stopped; 3) cooperation between stakeholders is not always optimal.
These three factors combined with other barriers mean that the impact of the programme has been lower than one might expect. To this end, recommendations and possible scenarios for improving the concept of Motorways of the Sea have been formulated.
