    Due to the development after the reunification of Germany, the opening of Eastern Europe and the creation of the Single European Market, German transport policy is facing great challenges. We must not only cope with considerable increases in traffic but also with geographically reoriented traffic flows and structural changes. German transport policy will tackle these challenges of the future with the aid of five strategies: (a) the integration of the individual modes of transport; (b) the exploitation of the possibilities offered by modern technology; (c) investments in the construction of new traffic routes and the improvement of existing ones; (d) the consistent utilization of the forces of the market in the transport sector; (e) the protection of the environment and the enhancement of road safety. These strategies are a constituent part of an integrated overall transport concept, which will put Germany in a position to satisfy the evergrowing demands in the field of transport.
