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 in other key economies

A number of other economies that are large exporters or importers (or both) – and therefore important to international trade and transport – were not able to participate in the OECD’s Strategic Transport Infrastructure to 2030 project. However, the approaches they take to transport infrastructure generally and strategic infrastructure in particular are of considerable interest, and can influence developments elsewhere. This chapter outlines recent developments in five such economies.
