In preparation for “refocusing the strategy in the next year”, the European Commission has opened a 12 week consultation to collect views of stakeholders on implementation and challenges for transport policy resulting from the 2011 White Paper on Transport: "Roadmap to a Single European Transport Area – Towards a competitive and resource efficient transport system".
Responses to the online questionnaire Stakeholder consultation on the mid-term review of the 2011 White Paper on transport will feed into the stock-taking of the 2011 White Paper.
Questionnaires should be returned by 2 June 2015 at the very latest.
To help achieve a Common Transport Policy, in 2011 the European Commission adopted the White Paper: "Roadmap to a Single European Transport Area – Towards a competitive and resource efficient transport system”, within the framework of the Union's 2020 growth strategy.
More broadly, it aimed to provide with access to safe, secure, reliable and affordable mobility resources to meet their own needs and aspirations, while minimising undesirable impacts such as congestion, accidents, air and noise pollution, and climate change effects.
According tot hr Commission, the roadmap is now being reassessed with the emergence of new technological opportunities, currently lower oil prices, the continued economic crisis and the adoption of the 2030 climate and energy framework by the European Council.
