Hannover, 4. April 2011 – the eu commission has her female book "traffic 2050 – timetable for a networked europe" presented in which they represents their ideas for the future traffic. The eu politicians see traffic as the basis of the economy and society in europe. Traffic is the prerequisite for growth.
Europe is currently on the crossroads. Erdol gets scarcer and increasingly from insecure sources. Although it has progressed, for example, in the development of efficient drives, the transport continues to 96 percent of the orgol. Chances to another, the eu commission sees the eu commission through one "smart" organization of the transport infrastructure. The designed to 2050 "timetable" in the female book focuses on domestic traffic and personal traffic on distances over 300 kilometers.
No internal combustion engines in the city
The eu commission wants to banish vehicles with internal combustion engine from the inner states. 50 percent of personal and good traffic should be relocated to rail and ships by 2050 by 2050. In addition, ideally one should "seamless networking" to be created between strain, rail, air and maritime transport to simplify this type of commands. 30 percent of the threaded traffic over 300 kilometers should be relocated to other means of transport such as rail or ship by 2030, until 2050, the share should be more than 50 percent.
Individual traffic, the commission preferably wants to relocate to the last kilometers of a route, and he should take place in environmentally friendly vehicles. But new engine technologies, fuels and traffic management systems should also be required. In city traffic, the commission wants to halve the number with conventional fuel-operated cars until 2030. In coarse city, it is even the goal, a practically co2-free "city logistics" to accomplish.
