A TEN taxpayer service

The 12 2003 December, the heads of government of the European Union formally gave its approval to the Community initiative: "Growth", an instrument that establishes significant investment in transport infrastructure. This initiative originating from the European Commission appears after a series of proposals drawn up by the European Commission, whose aim is to set up a long-term strategy ahead of the construction and financing of a European transport system. The result is clearly negative for the road user. On the one hand a program of construction of railways is proposed, and the other a higher level of taxation is proposed to the road user. On behalf of the road sector, will European Road Federation has expressed concern about these proposals, and limited reflection of the solutions required to transport challenges in the context of an enlarged Europe.
