The Ministry of Transport and Communications will set up a parliamentary working group tasked with determining the measures required for the maintenance and development of the transport network. Reduction of the maintenance backlog, development investments, the developments in digitalisation and the emission reduction targets will be taken into account.

The term of the working group is 28 February 2017– 28 February 2018. The working group will give an interim report on proposals related to emission reductions on 18 August 2017.

The task of the parliamentary working group on the transport network is to consider measures for responding to the emission reduction targets set for transport in the national climate policy, and for creating the preconditions for digital transport services and the automation of transport.
