Transcontinental Infrastructure Needs to 2030/2050

By Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development OECD

This volume explores the long-term opportunities and challenges facing major gateway and transport hub infrastructures—ports, airports, and major rail corridors—in the coming decades. It 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 that have significantly modified the risks and potential rewards.

Building on numerous in-depth case studies from Europe, North America, and Asia, the book offers insights into the economic prospects for these key facilities and identifies policy options for improved gateway and corridor infrastructure in the future.
