The European Commission’s proposals for road transport regulations cover road charging, market access and working times, among others. The Finnish Government supports the initiatives that aim to help the sector stay competitive and shift towards digital and low-emission transport. At the same time the Commission’s initiatives also aim to make traffic safer, cut red tape for businesses and safeguard workers’ social rights.

The European Commission published its proposal for a road transport package on 31 May 2017.

The Government submitted its communication concerning the EU road transport package to Parliament on 5 July 2017.
