Tachographs top agenda for EU ministers

Tachographs and plans for European transport networks are top of the agenda when EU transport ministers meet on Monday (12th December).

The council of ministers could reach a partial general approach to updating the current regulation for new technological solutions and reducing administrative burdens related to tachographs.

Ministers will also be looking to reach a political agreement on the establishment of a  single European railway area.

EU guidelines for the development of the Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T) will also be up for discussion, following the adoptin of a proposal for a new regulation by the European Commission in October.

The proposal contains the definition of comprehensive and core network, as well the timing for completion and maps of the different axes.
