The European Commission’s White Paper of 12.9.2001 “European transport policy for 2010: time to decide” aims to promote a sustainable transport policy. The White Paper proposes to achieve sustainability by gradually breaking the link between transport growth and economic growth, principally in three ways: changing the modal split in the long term, clearing infrastructure bottlenecks and placing safety and quality at the heart of the transport policy. The White Paper has proposed a number of measures for each of the 12 policy guidelines. As foreseen, the White Paper on Transport undergoes in 2005-2006 an overall assessment concerning the implementation of the measures it advocates and to check whether its targets - for example, on modal split or road safety - and objectives are being attained or whether adjustments are needed.
ASSESS provides technical support to the Commission services for the above mid-term assessment of the White Paper. As a project leader, TML analysed the economic, social and environmental consequences of all White Paper measures. It provides also a detailed analysis of those effects of enlargement likely to affect the structure and performance of the EU transport system. The analysis focuses on 4 policy scenarios for 2010 and 2020 in the view of the most recent global developments (GDP growth, security, international trade, migration, crude oil prices).
