The opinion "Europe on the Move: promoting seamless mobility solutions" (COTER-VI/032), Rapporteur Mr Ivan Žagar, (SI/EPP) covers the infrastructure and seamless mobility solutions. It also covers the aspects of smart road infrastructure charging and interoperability of European toll services and enforcement.
The opinion "Europe on the Move: Labour aspects of road transport" (COTER-VI/033), Rapporteur Mr Spyros Spyridon (EL/EPP), will cover the issues relating to the proposed revision of the access to the EU road haulage market (including vehicles hired without drivers), the enhancement of social legislation in road transport (including posting of workers in the transport sector) and enforcement requirements.
