ERFA strongly welcomes the European Commission’s approval of 60 M€ French state aid for the establishment, renewal and extension of rail freight sidings.
This is a welcome development in the French Government’s, and in particular the Transport Minister Elisabeth Borne’s support for the eco-friendly rail freight sector.
ERFA believes that if rail freight is to develop and grow it requires national governments to actively support sustainable investment in rail freight and to increase rail’s competitiveness vis-à vis the road sector's sustainable investment initiative into rail sidings.
