Data Reported data on noise exposure covered by Directive 2002/49/EC
The Directive relating to the assessment and management of environmental noise (the Environmental Noise Directive – END, 2002/49/EC) is the main EU instrument to identify noise pollution levels and to trigger the necessary action both at Member State and at EU level.

Policy Document New TEN-T guidelines and CEF
As of January 2014, the European Union has a new transport infrastructure policy that connects the continent between East and West, North and South. This policy aims to close the gaps between Member States' transport networks, remove bottlenecks that still hamper the smooth functioning of the internal market and overcome technical barriers such as incompatible standards for railway traffic. It promotes and strengthens seamless transport chains for passenger and freight, while keeping up with the latest technological trends. This policy is vital for Europe to re-boost its economy and to generate new jobs. The budget of €24.05 billion up to 2020, in combination with funds from other EU sources and the European Investment Bank, should significantly stimulate investments and ensure a successful implementation of the new infrastructure policy.

Figure Role of transport in national adaptation strategies and plans
At least 21 EEA member countries have developed national adaptation strategies (NAS) or plans and that such strategies are under development in at least five additional countries (Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Estonia, Italy and Liechtenstein). The transport sector is specifically addressed in most of those strategies and plans with some detail (including countries such as Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, the Netherlands,  Poland, Slovakia, Spain, Switzerland and United Kingdom)

Figure Exceedances of air quality objectives due to traffic measured in traffic stations and background stations
The figure shows the annual mean and back ground concentrations of NO2, PM10 and PM2.5 observed at traffic stations in 2013. The two highest PM10 concentration classes (dark orange and light orange) correspond to the 2005 annual LV (40 μg/m3) and to a statistically derived level (31 μg/m3) corresponding to the 2005 daily LV. The lowest class corresponds to the WHO air quality guideline for PM10 of 20 μg/m3.

Indicator Assessment Passenger transport demand
Passenger transport demand in the EU-28 increased by nearly 1.1 % between 2012 and 2013, after an overall downward trend since its peak in 2009. Car passenger travel remains the dominant transport mode, with a share well above 70 %. Air transport grew by 10 % in 2011, but stabilised in 2012 and 2013. However, it retained its pre-crisis modal share (9 %). The share of rail passenger travel has grown slightly in recent years, accounting for 6.6 % of transport demand in 2013. Land only passenger transport demand continued to grow in 2013 in the non-EU-28 countries, with Iceland experiencing 2.9 % growth, Turkey 3.2 %, Switzerland 1.6 % and Norway 1.3 %.
