Abstract

The coalition government is committed to the development of Britain’s transport networks, and encouraging low carbon solutions such as railway development. Gabriel Ahlfeldt shows how an innovative study of the impacts of a new German high speed rail (HSR) infrastructure clearly demonstrates significant economic benefits for the first time, benefits that the UK now needs to invest in also.
