Road safety performance : national peer review : Russian Federation by European Conference of Ministers of Transport( )

21 editions published in 2006 in 3 languages and held by 542 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Russian Federation has the highest road death rate of all ECMT member countries and contributes one third of all road deaths in these countries. This report finds that the problem is predominantly urban, concentrated in Russia's largest cities, and with particularly sharp increases in deaths and serious injuries experienced in the Moscow region. International experts who undertook this review confirm that substantial improvements in road safety can be achieved through concerted, sustained and evidence-based action, and they make a series of recommendations on how this can be done."--OECD
Transport links between Europe & Asia by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development( )

13 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Land links between Europe and Asia can offer a viable alternative to sea transport. However, the provision of efficient land links between Europe and Asia requires appropriate policy decisions on issues such as the development of adequate infrastructure and the removal of regulatory or institutional barriers that prevent the development of efficient transport services. This publication features the recommendations approved by the Ministers and the Report on trends in Europe-Asia trade and consequences for transport. It also includes the plan of action approved by Ministers to facilitate intermodal transport between Europe and Asia and the conclusions of a previous seminar in Kiev on Intermodal Transport between Europe and Asia: Opportunities and Challenges.--Publisher's description
Speed management by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development( )

10 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 490 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Speeding is responsible for around one third of the current, unacceptably high levels of road fatalities. Reducing average speeds on the roads by only 5% would save around 20% of current fatalities. This report, prepared by a Working Group of the Joint OECD/ECMT Transport Research Center, addresses the key issues and highlights the improvements in policy and operations needed to reduce the extent of speeding. It outlines a framework for achieving the best possible safety outcomes while protecting the environment and supporting sustainable mobility
Railway reform & charges for the use of infrastructure by Chris Nash( )

11 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 488 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the last few years, much progress has been made in developing rail charges to ensure non-discriminatory access to, and efficient use of national rail networks, but in Europe the international dimension is still missing, particularly in terms of the freight market. Integration of European markets should provide great opportunities for rail freight transport to grow. The purpose of this report is to set out how barriers to this growth - arising from differences in the way trains pay to use national networks - can be overcome. It recommends moving to a set of simple charges for freight that create similar incentives for the management and planning of train operations across national borders.--publisher summary
Transport and decentralisation by Round Table on Transport Economics( )

6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 481 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the past decades, many OECD countries transport sectors have become more decentralized. This report examines whether the economic benefits and experiences of decentralization have been positive. It finds that the answers vary according to the mode of transport, the type of decentralization, and transport users representation in the process of decision-making.--Publisher's description
Improving transport accessibility for all : guide to good practice by European Conference of Ministers of Transport( )

19 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and Turkish and held by 475 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Much has been done to improve the accessibility of transport systems in recent years. The ECMT has prepared this Guide to Good Practice in order to facilitate such an exchange of experience. It addresses both countries where improvements to accessibility are under way, and those that are just now making that commitment. With examples from recent experience in a wide range of countries, this Guide updates the ECMTs 1999 Guide, pointing to areas where progress has been made as well as to those where challenges persist. In particular, it covers principles for provision of information generally, how to improve information regarding the road and pedestrian environment, how to improve information provided within transport infrastructure, how to improve information provided relative to transport vehicles, new and innovative transport services, and private cars, and the roles of government."--Publisher summary
Inland waterways & environmental protection by OECD( )

10 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 451 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report reviews experience in mitigating the environmental impacts of inland waterway development. It examines effective consultation and planning procedures across Europe. In particular it assesses the ways in which the EU Water Framework Directive affects the planning environment for international waterways and sets a new agenda for improving the ecological value of waterways. It makes recommendations on good practice and identifies the Danube river basin as the critical area for improvement: This is where the efforts of international governmental organizations and NGOs could most usefully be combined to develop a basin-wide environmental protection and waterway development strategy.--Publisher summary

Improving access to public transport : guidelines for transport personnel by OECD Publishing( )

12 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 414 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Accessible, user-friendly transport means that disabled and older people can use the transport system without hindrance to participate in society on an equal basis without losing their independence. Whilst much progress has been made in all modes of transport to make travel easier and more pleasant for all passengers, it is the attitude and skill of the driver, captain, pilot, etc. that can make the difference between a pleasant and safe journey for a disabled or older person and one that is fraught with worry, frustration or confusion. These guidelines are designed to encourage understanding of the specific problems experienced by disabled and older passengers when using the transport system, and to provide guidance on how best to respond to their needs. They provide a practical approach to providing good customer care - a priority for all transport companies."--Publisher summary
Strategic environmental assessment in the transport sector by European Conference of Ministers of Transport( Book )

18 editions published between 1997 and 2000 in English and held by 353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: Strategic environmental assessment is emerging as a tool for integrated decision-making on major transport infrastructure investments and in the planning and policy making process more generally. The discipline is a new one, and by reviewing experience around the world, this report contributes to the development of effective procedures for incorporating adequate environmental assessments in all strategic transport sector decisions
Strategic environmental assessment for transport by OECD Publishing( Book )

14 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Environmental impact assessments are an essential component of making decisions on transport infrastructure investments. Traditional procedures have proved ineffective for impacts that go beyond the scope of projects in isolation. Strategic environmental assessment has emerged in response, to address large scale effects including impacts on traffic across networks, impacts on climate change and biodiversity and the impacts of policy decisions as opposed simply to individual projects. This report examines recent experience in developing environmental assessment internationally and makes recommendations on maximising the effectiveness of this new tool
Social aspects of road transport by European Conference of Ministers of Transport( )

19 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 347 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Papers from a seminar held by the European Conference of Ministers of Transport in Paris, 14-15 December 1998
Assessing the benefits of transport by European Conference of Ministers of Transport( Book )

20 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book discusses the full economic benefits - and costs - of transport infrastructure and explores ways to make good estimates of the full impact of planned investments on regional and national economies. It argues for proper account to be taken of all relevant economic weaknesses -- those the project is designed to address such as local monopoly pricing, those associated with use of the infrastructure such as environmental externalities, and possible unintended consequences such as impacts on local labour markets. Care must also be taken to verify that net benefits are likely to accrue to those that the project was intended to benefit. Building on recent groundbreaking work in the United Kingdom this publication suggests ways to improve traditional cost-benefit assessments, overcoming reservations that have inhibited the use of CBA in many countries. The main report is completed with examinations of transport project assessment approaches in France, Germany, the United Kingdom and across Europe together with a discussion of an approach to determining optimal levels of investment in transport infrastructure for maximising socio-economic welfare
Rail restructuring in Europe by European Conference of Ministers of Transport( )

17 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Europe's railways are going through a period of radical restructuring in the drive to improve their efficiency and competitiveness. The emphasis is on fostering commercial freedom through a clearer separation of the roles of the State and of rail enterprises and through a progressive opening of access to rail infrastructure. This report examines reforms in over 30 countries from the Atlantic to the Urals, characterizing restructuring in terms of management independence, separation of infrastructure from operations and rights of access to rail infrastructure
Crime in road freight transport by OECD Publishing( )

14 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Crime in road transport is a serious and growing problem. The extent of crime involving goods and goods vehicles is difficult to estimate, but data in some countries show that up to 1% of the commercial fleet is stolen each year, at an annual cost of many millions of euros. In a study of 23 European countries, this report describes the modes of theft of commercial vehicles and goods most prevalent in the 1990s, outlines the various methods used to record highway theft and draws attention to the statistical difficulties involved in measuring the phenomenon. It lists existing and potential security improvements for road freight vehicles, such as equipment to prevent vehicles from being stolen (anti-theft devices), and equipment to track and recover stolen vehicles (after-theft systems). This report results from two ECMT studies on "Theft of goods and goods vehicles" and "Improving security for road freight vehicles". It includes various ECMT Ministerial statements and policy decisions on the subject

Report on the current state of combined transport in Europe by European Conference of Ministers of Transport( Book )

15 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report on the current state of combined transport in Europe begins with an overview of combined transport in 30 European countries of the ECMT. It deals with both Central and Eastern European Countries that have recently become Members and the long-standing Member countries for which the most recent developments have been highlighted through the updating of a 1992 study on the improvements of main international piggyback links. The scope of the study, beyond road and rail, has been extended to include inland waterways and short-sea shipping, thus permitting a better evaluation of the current weaknesses of the sector and the possible improvements. On the basis of this report, the Council of Ministers of the ECMT has adopted a series of recommendations directed at all parties concerned in the public and private sectors, at both national and international level, regarding certain elements which are needed to achieve a significant improvement in combined transport and to ensure the sustainable development of the latter. These recommendations are also included in this publication
