Brussels, Belgium – Over 500 transport professionals from all across Europe will gather in Brussels on 6-8 November 2006 for the 2nd European Road Congress: “Time for a New European Transport Policy”, organised by the European Union Road Federation (ERF).
At this decisive moment for European Transport Policy, following the mid-term review of the European Commission’s 2001 Transport White Paper, the 2nd European Road Congress will provide a unique forum for road industry experts to interact with senior policy-makers and advance the debate on the future orientation of European Transport Policy.

- Financing road construction and maintenance;
- The enlargement of the European Union;
- Infrastructure road safety; and
- Intelligent roads.
The Congress will also offer an international perspective as European Transport Policy will be contrasted with policies being pursued in other regions, with interventions from senior representatives of the Chinese Ministry of Communications and the US Department of Transportation.
