The European Commission is organising a “Conference on fair and efficient road pricing” in Brussels on Wednesday, 5 December 2012. The Conference will be an opportunity to present the results of the public consultation on road charging which closed on 4 November.
High level speakers from the European Commission, the European Parliament, national administrations, industry and stakeholder organisations will present their views in sessions dedicated to the main topics of the public consultation:
Sustainable transport and infrastructure financing
Seamless movement of people and goods
Rights of road user
After each session, ample time is foreseen for Comments, Questions and Answers.
The Conference will contribute to the preparatory work of the European Commission's services by exploring the scope for possible new European Commission initiatives on road charging along the lines outlined in the 2011 White Paper on Transport
