Application of railway safety and interoperability rules within the Channel tunnel (C9-0212/2020)

08-10-2020
Written explanations of vote

I have voted in favour of the proposal to amend Directive 2016/798 as regards the application of railway safety in order to deal specifically with the situation of the Channel Fixed Link after the withdrawal of the UK from the EU. The Treaty between France and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland signed at Canterbury on the 12th February 1986 established an Intergovernmental Commission to supervise all matters concerning the construction and the operation of the Channel Fixed Link. To ensure the safe and efficient operation of the Channel Fixed Link, it would be beneficial to retain the Intergovernmental Commission as the single safety authority responsible for the whole infrastructure. To this end it is necessary to adapt this Directive.
