EU court says Hungary fails to comply with railway regulations

Hungary has failed to comply with European Union regulations stipulating that undertakings operating in the railway sector enjoy equitable and non-discriminatory access to the railway network, the European Court of Justice announced on Friday. The European Court of Justice sustained the European Commission's claim that Hungary had infringed EU railway-liberalization regulations when it entrusted traffic management not to an independent body, but to the two railway companies traditionally responsible for this task--state-owned railway company MÁV and regional railway company GySEV.  The court added that Hungary's failure to establish conditions to ensure that the accounts of infrastructure managers are balanced and to adopt incentives to reduce the costs and charges connected with the operation and use of infrastructure violates an EU railway directive.
