This publication addresses these problems and, more specifically, it considers the difficult access to Western Europe for peripheral regions and for Central and Eastern Europe, as well as their need to upgrade networks. Current responses to these problems are inadequate. Statistics and analytical tools are lacking, national approaches are highly differentiated, and analyses and concepts are rudimentary and purely sectoral. This publication considers various measures for gearing European transport infrastructure more effectively to requirements, including an improved perception of demand for international transport, harmonized forecasting models and planning procedures, definition of pan-European transport networks, infrastructural investments, improving network operations, and finally, measures to influence demands for mobility.
