Report of the eighty-first Round Table on Transport Economics, held in Paris on 11th-12th May 1989 on the following topic, private and public investment in transport by European Conference of Ministers of Transport( Book )

15 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Europe's transport links with its periphery are still inadequate while some more central areas are plagued with traffic congestion. Since new investment projects to maintain infrastructure and increase its capacity cannot always be entirely funded out of the public purse, the question of using private sector funds arises. Round Table 81 takes stock of the problems and considers the contribution private capital could bring in funding transport infrastructure
Report of the Eighty-Sixth Round Table on Transport Economics, held in Paris on 7th-8th June 1990 on the following topic : by European Conference of Ministers of Transport( Book )

15 editions published in 1992 in 4 languages and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As matters now stand, the planned investment in transport infrastructure cannot accomodate the growth in demand that will result from increased flows of traffic. Moreover, such investment has a whole range of effects on regional development, wealth distribution, and public well-being. The need to protect the environment also suggests that the construction of more infrastructure will be curbed and that any increases in capacity will be optimized. These factors have led to an appraisal of the reliability of methods of evaluating the relevant investment choices. This publication describes the techniques used for evaluation in a number of ECMT countries and the effectiveness of such methods, and examines conditions governing their use
Report of the Hundred and Twenty Second Round Table on Transport Economics held in Paris on 7-8th March 2002 on the following topic : Transport and exceptional public events by European Conference of Ministers of Transport( Book )

13 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Exceptional events generate major flows of visitors and often require material back-up on a very large scale. They involve very specific transport and logistics requirements. Security is another major consideration that is inseparable from transport. The Round Table took note of experience with such events in Europe and the rest of the world, which shows that setting ambitious targets contributes to the quality of the event. Almost every experience is unique and one of the main conclusions of the Round Table is that a record should be kept of each event" and its organizing and staging requirements. In this way, an event "memory" could be built up that would be available to any would-be event organizer. --Publisher's description

Transport and telecommunications : report of the Fifty-Ninth Round Table on Transport Economics held in Paris on 14th-15th January, 1982 by European Conference of Ministers of Transport( Book )

5 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Transport and telecommunications are complementary technologies, essential to the functioning of the economic and social system, which facilitate the making and development of relationships. But as means of communication they also compete. The recent development of telecommunications constitutes a challenge to the transport sector. This report sets out to identify the nature and scope of that challenge

Report of the hundred and seventh Round Table on Transport Economics held in Paris on 26th-27th March 1998 on the following topic : user charges for railway infrastructure by European Conference of Ministers of Transport( Book )

14 editions published in 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Now that railway infrastructure and train operations have been separated in Europe -- at least for accounting purposes -- user charges for infrastructure are progressively being introduced to cover the costs of running trains. However, because of the lack of experience in this field, it is difficult to set the amount and choose the most appropriate form for these charges. There are in fact major differences between countries, and the objectives are many and sometimes conflicting. Given this situation, the Round Table sought to highlight, through its introductory reports and discussions, some essential economic principles that can help to shed light on what a rational system of user charges for railway infrastructure might be and thereby make it possible to address a crucial aspect of railway reform in Europe. Special attention is paid to the German, French, British and Swedish experience
Report of the hundred and fifth Round Table on Transport Economics, held in Paris on 7th-8th November 1996 on the following topic : infrastructure-induced mobility by European Conference of Ministers of Transport( Book )

11 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Do roads induce mobility? This might sound like a strange question, yet it only stands to reason that building new roads -- or other infrastructure -- may actually encourage people to use the new additional capacity to travel more. Induced mobility is a hotly debated issue, but the experts are no longer in any doubt that it is a very real phenomenon. However, measuring it is another matter, since we do not have sufficient data or experience in this area. This Round Table presents the data that is available to date on infrastructure-induced mobility. From the introductory reports and discussions, it is clear that much progress has been made in the last few years. As recently as ten years ago, many experts would have disputed the very existence of the induced mobility phenomenon. Today a consensus is emerging: Round Table 105 gives the full report
Report of the hundred and tenth Round Table on Transport Economics, held in Paris on 12th-13th March 1998 on the following topic : traffic congestion in Europe by European Conference of Ministers of Transport( Book )

14 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: The problems caused by road congestion are frequently reported in the media and finding a solution to congestion ranks high on the agenda of politicians. Countless studies have been published detailing the number of working hours lost in traffic jams. The figures quoted in these studies are alarming and paint an apocalyptic picture of road congestion. However, besides the everyday congestion faced by motorists, differences of opinion are now starting to appear with regard to the scale of the problem and the ways in which it should be tackled. This Round Table attempted to define congestion and to determine the scale of the problem. It addressed the trends in congestion and the consequences of those trends. The Round Table then considered possible solutions to the congestion problem. Considering the extent of this problem in the European context, the Round Table report sheds light on one of the most visible malfunctions of transport systems
Report of the hundred and ninth Round Table on Transport Economics, held in Paris, 11th-12th December 1997 on the following topic : freight transport and the city by European Conference of Ministers of Transport( Book )

11 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The aim of every politician is to transform the city into an environmentally sustainable entity. However, while the planning and organisation of passenger services within cities is commonly perceived as a major issue, freight transport is not given the full attention it deserves. As a general rule, the role which freight transport plays in the economy of cities is simply not understood. What invariably attracts attention, on the other hand, is the added pollution and congestion caused by freight transport. Europe has recently produced a host of new urban development schemes which place more or less severe restrictions on freight movements in cities. While some cities have introduced measures in line with the town planning objectives of territorial development plans, others have adopted short-term solutions to traffic management problems. Since we know that cities are living entities whose vital processes can be disrupted, how can we be sure that all of these measures are a step in the right direction? Our lack of experience makes this a question we would be well advised to consider. The Round Table reviewed the various aspects of freight transport by examining experiences in different countries and by discussing some of the more innovatory approaches adopted
Report of the hundred and fifth [i.e. fifteenth] Round Table on Transport Economics, held in Paris on 4th-5th November 1999 on the following topic : road freight transport for own account in Europe by European Conference of Ministers of Transport( Book )

10 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Road freight transport for own account represents a major share of inland transport in Europe and, depending on the country concerned, accounts for two to five times the tonnage carried by rail. Despite its importance, however, own account transport tends to be overlooked since it is not regarded as a logistics activity, whereas it is, in fact, a vital transport function that is changing radically as firms increasingly outsource their distribution activities to commercial hauliers. The scale of road freight transport for own account, the impact of regulatory changes and the future of the sector are the themes addressed in the introductory reports and the experts' discussions outlined in this publication
Report of the Hundred and Nineteenth Round Table on Transport Economics held in Paris on 29-30th March 2001 on the following topic : transport and economic development by European Conference of Ministers of Transport( Book )

14 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The linkage between transport and economic development is a highly contentious issue which has generated considerable debate and an abundant literature. There is a firmly-held belief among politicians that investment in transport infrastructure promotes economic development and, by extension, employment. However, this belief is not borne out by scientific analysis, which would seem to indicate that the impact of this type of investment on employment and economic development remains limited, at least in developed countries, and at the purely regional level can even prove negative. The Round Table set out to clarify this issue by analyzing the arguments for and against the presumed linkage between "transport infrastructure" and "economic development". This provided a basis on which it could draw conclusions regarding the evaluation methods of investment commonly used. The debate ended with a review of the basic policy issue of whether or not a link existed between transport and economic growth."--Publisher's description
Report of the hundred and sixth Round Table on Transport Economics held in Paris on 28th-29th November 1996 on the following topic : Intercity transport markets in countries in transition by Round Table on Transport Economics( Book )

9 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After the fall of the Berlin Wall and the collapse of the previous economic system, the countries of central and eastern Europe went into a deep economic recession, resulting in a decline in Gross Domestic Product that was mirrored by a serious downturn in the transport sector. The transport sector, like the economy in general, changed from a supply-based system to one driven by demand. Decisions were no longer imposed by central planners, but by the market. Round Table 106 set out to assess the state of the transport sector in central and eastern European countries after a period of five to six years of reform. Are the policies currently in place adequate to meet restructuring needs? All of the countries concerned are planning to join the European Union and with that in mind tend to organise their transport sector along the lines of the Community's model of competition. But is this model consistent with the attitudes and realities of former socialist countries? These are some of the issues addressed by the Round Table 106
