  1. Competition in the Railway Industry

    Competition in the Railway Industry

    Edited by José A. Gómez-Ibáñez, Ginés de Rus
    Numerous countries have attempted to improve the performance of their railways by introducing more competition, but there is fierce debate and no consensus on how this is best achieved. This book reveals how railways were an obvious target for reform because they were often losing traffic and money, and because the government was typically deeply involved as either owner or regulator.

  5. Cost–Benefit Analysis and Evolutionary Computing

    Cost–Benefit Analysis and Evolutionary Computing

    John H.E. Taplin, Min Qiu, Vivian K. Salim, Renlong Han
    This book systematically addresses the issue of interdependence between road projects in a network, when prioritising and scheduling road expansion and maintenance. The book presents substantial applications for both rural and urban projects and to the optimization of maintenance. The authors confirm the extreme sensitivity to project timing but also show that solutions with almost equal net present values may have dissimilar work schedules. One of these may be selected on environmental or other grounds without losing road user benefits. They go on to explore and demonstrate the issues associated with the integration of evolutionary computing techniques, transport modelling and cost–benefit analysis to achieve an optimal road investment timetable.

  13. Recent Developments in Transport Economics

    Recent Developments in Transport Economics

    Edited by Kenneth Button
    The past decade has seen both some new trends in the economics of transportation and the reinforcement of work from previous periods. Econometrics and innovative programming techniques have developed the work on production efficiency and interest in demand analysis has continued. Of increasing importance in recent years are the environmental implications of transportation as well as safety and security concerns. Economists are also addressing the problems of congestion with particular regard to new policy initiatives which tie transportation more closely to land-use patterns and telecommunications. In this volume Kenneth Button brings together some of the most significant previously published articles by leading academics in all these crucial areas. Learn More

    European Union Port Policy

    Constantinos I. Chlomoudis, Athanasios A. Pallis
    A coherent common EU wide port policy has not yet been achieved, but the authors of this book argue that it has a major role to play in European integration and that its significance in this context is set to increase. European Union Port Policy assesses the progress that has been made towards a comprehensive policy framework, reviewing the impact of both historical and contemporary policy initiatives – such as the recent ‘port package’ – before forecasting expected developments in policy making and the prospects of successfully achieving a single port policy.
