ABSTRACT
This article reports that the Department for Transport, Local Government and the Regions has started consultation on the European Commission's latest proposals for revitalizing Europe's railraods. The proposals cover accelerated completion of the liberalization of the rail freight market, so that freight train operators have freedom to operate domestic, or international, services anywhere in the European Union (EU). Further measures to promote the interoperability of the EU rail systems are also considered. The proposals also cover a harmonized system of railway safety regulation-based on national safety authorities, separate national accident investigation bodies, and common safety methods and targets.
