E-002761/2017(ASW)
Answer given by Ms Bulc on behalf of the Commission
Question reference: E-002761/2017

New high speed railway lines, many of which allow for both passenger transport and transport of goods, reduce the demand for CO2 emitting road transport.

New high speed lines free capacities on the conventional railway lines thus allowing a shift from road transport of goods to transport by rail which leads to a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.

Additionally, it is worth noticing that on several connections along the network, the high speed railway services have completely replaced air transport connections.
