Article
Road transport investments have traditionally been assessed using cost-benefit analysis (CBA). However, the scientific literature shows that CBA has important limitations and does not capture all of the positive and negative impacts of road projects. A more comprehensive model could include territorial impacts such as those described further. Chang...

Los Juegos Olímpicos (JJOO) suponen importantes inversiones por parte de las ciudades anfitrionas y se espera que impacten positivamente en la economía y la imagen turística de las ciudades y países responsables de su organización. El presente estudio analiza cuestiones menos estudiadas como son la movilidad y el uso que los residentes y visitantes...
Article
Full-text available
In their national contexts border areas are peripheral and generally located in sparsely populated territories, far from large urban agglomerations. Higher transport costs are therefore incurred by residents and businesses in these areas when connecting with central markets, and this reduces their accessibility to economic activities and more speci...
Article
Social network data offer interesting opportunities in urban studies. In this study, we used Twitter data to analyse city dynamics over the course of the day. Users of this social network were grouped according to city zone and time slot in order to analyse the daily dynamics of the city and the relationship between this and land use. First, daytim...

Purpose The accessibility of a certain place can evolve eitheras the direct result of transport changes or as a consequence ofthe spatial redistribution of economic activities. These twofactors are often indis tinguishable—especially at r egionallevel— since improved infrastructure stimulates relocation ofactivities. Moreover, infrastructure invest...
Article
Full-text available
Internal travel distances are fundamental in accessibility measurement, as they affect the weight of the intra-regional interactions, especially when using a gravity formulation. The contribution of the internal accessibility of each zone to its overall accessibility is known as self-potential. Several studies demonstrate its importance in accessib...
Article
Full-text available
In the transport sector, where change comes with inertia and investments are made with a long term perspective, decision makers need to consider how the future may look like in the very long term. The work presented in this paper is a scenario analysis focusing on the evolution of transport demand towards 2050, aiming to identify related challenges...
Article
This study presents the evolution of travel speeds in the European Core road network, between 1960 and 2030. Speeds are represented in octilinear cartograms which constitutes one of the novelties of this study. Octilinear cartograms have the advantage of simplifying the geographical representation of transport networks, while emphasizing the connec...

This article reviews innovation of the European transport industries. It combines a quantitative analysis of the R&D investment of manufacturers of transport equipment, transport service providers and the constructors of transport infrastructure for the years 2008 and 2011 with a qualitative assessment of their incentives to innovate. The latter ta...
Book
The concept of accessibility is linked to the level of opportunities available for spatial interaction (flows of people, goods or information) between a set of locations, through a physical and/or digital transport infrastructure network. Accessibility has proved to be a crucial tool for understanding the framework of sustainability policy in light...
Chapter
The globalization of population and trade flows yielded an increase of interactions within the international framework. Accessibility indicators are especially suited to represent spatial interaction since they capture two basic factors that determine the amount of flows between a set of places: the opportunities available and the infrastructure us...
Article
We rely on the economic theory approach to index numbers to improve the existing definitions and decompositions of variations in generalized transport costs (GTCs). As a value index, we decompose GTCs into price and quantity indices associated to economic market costs and infraestructure variables distance and time within a network. The methodology...

Álvarez-Ayuso I. C., Condeço-Melhorado A. M., Gutiérrez J. and Zofío J. L. Integrating network analysis with the production function approach to study the spillover effects of transport infrastructure, Regional Studies. The production function approach is used to analyse the role of transport infrastructure on regional gross domestic product (GDP)...
Article
Network effects and spatial spillovers are intrinsic impacts of transport infrastructure. Network effects imply that an improvement in a particular link in a network generates effects in many other elements of that network, while spillover effects can be defined as those impacts occurring beyond the regions where the actual transport investment is...
Article
In 2011 the ‘Eurovignette’ directive on distance-based road pricing in Europe was finally passed by the European Parliament and the European Council. It will bring benefits to the environment and contribute towards financing the cost of maintaining road infrastructure, but wider effects are also expected. This study measures the transfer of revenue...
Article
Full-text available
The market potential model is frequently used to analyse conditions relating to the accessibility of an area. In recent times, it has also been applied for evaluating spatial spillovers produced by infrastructures. However, the results of this indicator are influenced by the distance exponent value, representing the effect of distance decay on econ...

Territorial cohesion is a routine part of the job of spatial planners. However, it has not always been measured using a valid and solid methodology. This paper addresses conceptually how regional spillovers of transport investments of the Spanish master plan (''Plan Estratégico de Infraestructuras y Transporte'' 2005–2020) affect territorial cohesi...
Article
This paper develops a methodology for calculating the European value added value (EVA) generated by transport infrastructure projects. This approach is particularly useful for evaluating projects in the framework of Trans-European Transport Networks (TEN-T), although it may also be used in trans-national projects in other geographical areas. The me...
Article
Road pricing policies are gaining prominence in EU countries. These policies have positive impacts leading to mobility patterns which are socially and environmentally more desirable, but they also have negative impacts. One negative impact is to be found in regional accessibility, due to the increase in generalized transport costs. This study prese...
Article
Full-text available
We use the economic theory approach to index numbers in order to improve the existing definitions and decompositions of generalized transport costs (GTCs), and thus to obtain a better understanding of their economic and infrastructure determinants. Using this approach we accurately measure the contribution made to reducing GTCs by the variation in...
Article
This paper proposes a methodology to measure spatial spillovers of transport infrastructure investment and to monetize them by distributing the costs of the infrastructures envisaged according to the regional distribution of the potential accessibility benefits. We use a transport master plan (the Spanish “Plan Estratégico de Infraestructuras y Tra...

Project
The objective is to measure accessibility and mobility by transport mode at different time frames in order to integrate travel time data and the attractiveness of the destinations in dynamic accessibility indicators. For example, travel times are being extracted from TomTom Speed Profiles and Google Maps. In addition, OD matrices at different time frames will be built from geo-located tweets, credit cards, public transport cards and other sources in order to measure the spatio-temporal variability of the attractiveness of destinations and of the transport demand.
