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.



Key issues emerging from the case studies

The major gateways and hubs considered here are preparing for large increases in volumes in the future. Some have large infrastructure expansion plans and developments under way. Most are working on international connections and on the improvements needed to inland connections. All are acutely aware of the importance of good planning and secure funding and financing to take advantage of the opportunities. Good structures and organisational models are highlighted, as well as some of the best funding and financing models currently used to provide funding security. Other wide-ranging issues are raised that need to be addressed satisfactorily if the projects are to be successful.
