  • L’ESPO plaide pour une directive portuaire européenne réaliste
    La future directive européenne sur la libéralisation des services portuaires fera sûrement encore couler beaucoup d’encre, au fur et à mesure que les discussions se poursuivront sur ce texte, que devra approuver le Parlement européen. A la fin de la semaine dernière, Oslo a été le théâtre d’une importante réunion des membres de l’ESPO (European Sea Ports Organisation), qui ont tenté de prendre position vis-à-vis de la proposition de la Commission. La principale conclusion qui se dégage de cette réunion, est que de sérieuses divergences d’optique existent entre ports du Nord et du Sud de l’Europe sur ce dossier, mais que tous sont d’accord pour considérer que le document en question doit faire l’objet d’adaptations.

  • La SNCB entame la séparation des trafics marchandises/voyageurs
    Les huit kilomètres de la ligne 147 entre Fleurus et Auvelais peuvent paraître insignifiants par rapport aux centaines de kilomètres de lignes nouvelles pour les TGV en France, en Belgique ou aux Pays-Bas. Mais pour la SNCB, la réouverture de cette ligne (une première depuis plus de vingt ans) est très importante, car elle est le prélude à une séparation du trafic marchandises et voyageurs sur un des plus importants axes de trafic de la SNCB.
