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.



Strategic planning and contributions to green growth

National visions and long-term plans for strategic infrastructure development (with consistent policies, co-ordinated developments and aligned networks) are essential inputs to planning and evaluation assessments of the gateway infrastructure required. Strategic planning at the national level especially can best assess the broad outlook, highlight major changes in demand, identify strategic options for how best to respond, and assess possible impacts of policy changes to address issues and improve outcomes. For infrastructure yet to be built, important contributions to green growth – clearly an emerging priority in many locations – can be made during infrastructure planning and development stages. Once developed, there is considerable scope for management of infrastructure use, including in relation to cleaner vehicle and vessels technologies, to raise those contributions.
