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.

Improving evaluation processes

Evaluations of strategic infrastructures need to capture the possible infrastructure contributions to the full range of longer term objectives – including growth, productivity, competitiveness, trade, energy efficiency and CO2 reduction. At the moment there is much room for improvement, which could take the form of longer evaluations, lower discount rates, and recognition of infrastructure’s contributions to green growth.
