The European Commission intends to equip the roads, bridges and railways in the EU countries and to simplify the border formalities for the transport of the tanks and other heavy military equipment. Such decision was made against the escalation of the relations with Russia as DW reported.
According to the plan of the European Commission, the roads, bridges and railways in the EU should be checked for the suitability for the transport of the military equipment until 2019.
At the moment, the military equipment cannot be transported everywhere due to the heavy weight and large size.
The additional funds for the renovations will be allocated from the EU budget since 2020.
