Adoption of the second railway package

The European Parliament and the Council of Ministers of Transport adopted in April the second railway package, which plans the complete opening to competition of the European rail freight market on 1st January 2007 and the setting up of a European railway agency to improve interoperability and security of rail systems (to be located in Lille - Valenciennes, France).

Discussions are still under way for the third railway package, that concerns the opening of international passenger rail transport markets.
