Press release

EIM, the association of European Rail Infrastructure Managers, welcomes the conclusions adopted last Friday by the Transport Council which encourage EU Member
States to adopt Multi-Annual Contracts with rail infrastructure managers. EIM believes such contracts are vital for ensuring the long term stability of rail infrastructure managers, allowing efficient planning for investment, maintenance and renewal of the
network, as well as driving forward improved quality of service for customers. However EIM is disappointed by the Council’s decision not to make such contracts mandatory.
