East European Rail: The State of the Network
Abstract:Since 1990 the economies of central and eastern European countries have undergone radical restructuring. Changes in social and industrial structure as well as greater mobility have had a notable influence on railway freight traffic and passenger transport. The overall trend in transport demand has been a spectacular fall after the political change. During the accession process, each country had to adopt European legislation in its national regulatory framework. The necessary organizations were set up to ensure railway safety and to regulate and control the railway market. Transportation performance has been stabilized and now follows the European trend. The overall development is considerably accelerated by the European contribution to numerous plans and programmes for the rehabilitation of the rail infrastructure and other railway facilities.
