Promoting the railway freight transport is a priority in the policies and laws of the European Union. This is due to the fact that railway transport is cleaner and more efficient than the other ways of transport, producing less carbon dioxide emissions as compared to road transport. At the same time, it is a safer way of transport, with an rate of accidents significantly lower than road transport. By this paper, the author aims at outlining the new tendencies shown in the railway transport against the approaches of the European Union towards creating of a unified trans-European transport network (TEN-T).
