ABSTRACT
The article provides an update on legislative and regulatory reforms in the various European Union (EU) member states, almost two decades after the EU began the process of railway liberalisation. Chris Nash, research professor from the Institute for Transport Studies at the University of Leeds, listed five points to consider when assessing how European policy had been applied in different countries. These include the degree of separation between infrastructure and operations, access to rail-related services, and the degree of competition for operators.
