EU agrees continuity of transport post-Brexit

Brussels, Belgium: The European parliament has approved measures to avoid major disruptions road transport between the UK and the EU in case of the UK leaving without a negotiated agreement.

The contingency measures allow UK operators to provide services between the UK and the EU in case of a no-deal Brexit for a limited period.

The European parliament voted to allow UK road haulage and bus and coach operators to provide services between the UK and the EU until the end of 2019, as long as the UK confers the equivalent rights to EU operators.

The measures now need to be formally approved by the Council of the EU.

At the request of the European Parliament and the Council, the European Commission proposed contingency measures to mitigate the effects of a withdrawal of the UK from the EU without an agreement.

The contingency measures do not replicate the benefits of membership or of a transition period. They are limited in time and adopted unilaterally by the EU under the condition that the UK adopts similar measures.
