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.

Infrastructure funding: Gateways and inland links

There are a number of different options for general or gateway-specific funding arrangements. Models that rely on annual budget funding cycles to supplement user revenues rarely produce satisfactory outcomes; what counts is secure funding from multiple and diverse sources. Airports should be focusing on the capacity increases that will be required, especially given long lead times, and inland transport cannot be regarded as a second-order issue.
