Commission to propose rail unbundling plans
Germany leads opposition to rail liberalisation.
Appeared in print on 17.01.2013
The European Commission is to unveil plans for a further liberalisation of the European rail market. But it is likely to face serious resistance from a bloc of countries led by Germany, because it will propose mandatory separation of rail managers and track operators. The college of commissioners is currently scheduled to adopt the proposal on Wednesday (23 January).
