Introduction to special issue of Transportation Research Part B Modelling non-urban transport investment and pricing
This special issue of Transportation Research Part B is concerned with the state of the art modelling approaches applied to transport infrastructure issues. Six papers have been included, utilizing either partial or general equilibrium models in order to develop economic assessments of large, inter-urban transport modes. The papers as a group highlight the importance of accounting for the market environment and competition among infrastructure providers, assessing economic and regional equity issues in a wider context, acknowledging the risks of misrepresentation of project benefits and reducing network dimensionality in order to assist the development of second opinions in cost-benefit analyses.
