Despite the significant progress made over the last 20 years in creating a Single Market for Transport, the sector still suffers from multiple barriers which generate substantial additional costs. The new research estimates the potential benefits of removing barriers and inefficiencies in the single market for rail transport at between 20 and 55 billion euro for the next 20 years, equivalent to, on average, 1 billion euro per year. Integration in the road sector could bring a net benefit of 50 to 90 billion euro over the same period, or some 3.5 billion euro per year.
