Tyrol and Germany at loggerheads
Germany and Tyrol (Austria) are still arguing about the restrictive block clearance of HGVs on the countries’ common border.
The German national association for road freight transportation, logistics and waste management (BGL) remarked: “Tyrol says that the HGV block clearance system is proving effective, but Germany says it leads to kilometre long tailbacks on roads in Bavaria.”
The trade body says it hopes that Tyrol suspends the measures that have a negative impact on the free movement of goods in the EU, and endanger road users. If Tyrol does not cooperate, the EU Commission needs to take steps to stop the infringement of the law governing the free movement of goods. (ben)
