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 transport infrastructure case studies

The case studies reinforce the importance of major international gateway and corridor infrastructures to international trade and the economies of each country. International passenger and freight movements are highly concentrated along major trade corridors, distinguished by high-volume, efficient services. Major international ports, airports and key inland transport connections in each country handle the bulk of the traffic. Increases in demand can be expected along inland connections from gateways to the cities and industrial areas in their hinterlands, making each country’s international gateways and inland trade corridor infrastructures even more important to its national economy. World-class gateway, hub and inland infrastructure will be required in the future to attract the transport services required and to fully support the growth and development of these economies.
