Implementing Change in the European Railway System

Objective

The REORIENT project will assess progress in transferring European railways to an internationally integrated and standardized system through implementation by Member and Accession Countries of EU interoperability legislation. It will thus support the EU policy of shifting international freight transport from road to rail. The project is divided in three parts. In Part A, REORIENT will identify the target countries' political and administrative bodies responsible for interoperability implementation and identify barriers encountered in this process. It will capture progress in interoperability between country blocks to define their ability to remove interstate inter-rail discrepancies. Since interoperability requires significant investments, REORIENT will define the tolerance margins national politicians enjoy to channel scarce economic resources to the rail sector in competition with other social needs.
