15 October 2010 - UETR disillusioned by the EU compromise on the revision of the Eurovignette Directive
UETR the European Road Haulers Association feels disappointed with the compromise on the revision of the Eurovignette Directive agreed by the Transport Council of the European Union today. The congestion charge proposed earlier is dropped into the Belgian proposition. Instead thereof, Member States can now impose a much higher infrastructure charge. The proposed charges for noise and pollution are maintained but no agreement has been reached on earmarking.
