Strategic Transport Infrastructure Needs to 2030

image of Strategic Transport Infrastructure Needs to 2030
Transcontinental Infrastructure Needs to 2030/50 explores the long-term opportunities and challenges facing major gateway and transport hub infrastructures --  ports, airports and major rail corridors – in the coming decades.  The report uses projections and scenarios to assess the broader economic outlook and future infrastructure requirements, and examines the options for financing these, not least against the backdrop of the economic recession and financial crisis which have significantly modified the risks and potential rewards associated with major infrastructure projects.  Building on numerous in-depth case studies from Europe, North America and Asia, the report offers insights into the economic prospects for these key facilities and identifies policy options for improved gateway and corridor infrastructure in the future.


Global infrastructure needs to 2030

Based on the new and revised estimates of infrastructure needs presented herein, significant investments in all four economic infrastructure sectors – ports, airports, rail corridors, and oil and gas pipelines – will be required on a global basis to meet the projected increases in demand over the next 20 years. However, given that governments in OECD member countries are facing large deficits and fiscal consolidation tasks over the next five years or longer, there is clearly a risk of inadequate investment in infrastructure in the medium- to longer term future. This would have significant impacts, given the key role infrastructure can play in facilitating and promoting competitiveness and growth.
