Fundamental changes are taking place in Europe - demographic, economic, technological and lifestyles. Barriers are coming down and the EC 12 are likely to increase in number, making Europe the largest free trade area in the world. Transport will have a key role in achieving greater unification in Europe. This book takes a Europe-wide perspective in presenting transport by the different modes of travel. This contextual part is then balanced with extensive reviews of the policy issues and challenges facing decision makers - these include missing transport networks, the issue of sustainability, peripheral countries, regulatory reforms, links with Central and East European countries, finance and investment. Finally, a comparison is made with the USA. The book brings together 22 authors from 16 different countries, and this unique combination of international authors gives an authoritative overview of transport. It provides a definitive view of the main transport issues in Europe and analyses the main challenges facing decision makers at all levels.
