Commission adopts “no-deal” contingency measure for railway connectivity

Commission adopts “no-deal” contingency measure for railway connectivity

Given the increasing risk that the United Kingdom may leave the European Union on 30 March this year without a deal (a “no-deal” scenario), the European Commission has adopted a proposal to help mitigate the significant impact that such a scenario would have on rail transport and connectivity between the EU and the UK, Caspian Energy News ( reports with reference to the press statement of the European Commission.

The proposal will ensure the validity of safety authorisations for certain parts of rail infrastructure for a strictly limited period of three months to allow long-term solutions in line with EU law to be put in place. This will ensure the protection of rail-passengers, the safety of citizens and will avoid major disruptions of cross-border rail operations after the UK's withdrawal.

The proposal is temporary in nature, limited in scope and will be adopted unilaterally by the EU.
