ELEMENTS FROM THE UNION TRANSPORT POLICY

This paper discusses some key factors that influence the strategic assessment of transport in the European regions. 1992 was a turning point in the development of the European Common Transport Policy (CTP). Since 1992, the CTP has focused on a comprehensive policy, designed to ensure the proper functioning of the European Community's transport system. One of its greatest challenges is to integrate it with the European Union Treaty's environmental objectives. Trans European Networks (TEN) have become a community policy. They require specific European Community (EC) actions aiming at the interconnection and interoperability of national networks and access to those networks. The Treaty will make the TEN subject to shared power by the European Council and European Parliament, with the new Committee of the Regions also giving opinions. The already accepted TEN for Roads, Combined Transport, Inland Waterways and High Speed Trains will be revised and completed, together with plans for Airports, Ports, Conventional Rail, and Traffic Management Systems. Future Union legislative action will be oriented to completing appropriate gaps in the internal market provisions, and continuing the internal market's reinforcement and internal operation.
