This chapter addresses two significant changes in the European Union’s transport policy instituted in the last two decades. The first clearly relates to enlargement: the EU transport policy now covers a larger area of EU 28, as opposed to the area of EU 12 after the publication of the 1992 White Paper on transport. The other significant change is the broadening of the policy itself during this period to include country- and urban-level transport issues, in addition to the earlier focus on continental and EU-wide interconnection and synchronisation. This broadening resulted from recognition that targets for EU competitiveness were unachievable without an encompassing approach to policies for transportation.
