Background

The Ministers seek a general approach on a proposal aimed at giving new tasks to the European Railway Agency and streamlining its existing processes. The proposed regulation   (6012/13) is part of the technical pillar of the fourth railway package published by the Commission in January 2013.
The technical pillar is aimed at removing the remaining administrative and technical barriers hampering the creation of a single European rail market. It also includes new rules on theinteroperability and safety of European railways. Since the ERA is active in the fields of interoperability and safety, the revision of its rules is closely linked to the outcomes on the other two legislative files.
Further in the area of railways, the Council is expected to adopt a Council position on a proposal establishing a public-private partnership called Shift2Rail Joint Undertaking (17967/13). Shift2Rail will seek to develop and validate innovative technologies and solutions that contribute, among other things, to reducing life-cycle costs of the railway transport system, increasing its capacity and improving reliability of rail services.
Ministers also hold a policy debate on the Commission Communication “Together towards competitive and resource-efficient urban mobility” (18136/13). The debate is to be guided by a set of questions prepared by the Greek presidency. The Communication is the central element of the Urban Mobility Package. With the package, the Commission reinforces supporting measures in the area of urban transport, inter alia by fostering
cooperation, providing targeted financial support, focusing research and innovation on addressing
urban mobility challenges, involving the member states and enhancing international cooperation.
