Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


Nine countries have participated in this project from 1991 to 1996, with the aims of detailing the relationship that might exist between putting into service a major transport infrastructure (the Channel Tunnel) and its consequences on the socio-economic transformation of an area, and, as far as possible, of suggesting a method of documenting and evaluating them. The final project report is a presentation concerning the state of the art of evaluation of the socio-economic effects of major transport infrastructures. This report documents the results of the major task of collecting information, supported by analytical elements which allow future milestones to be set. It clearly shows that techniques for evaluation of socio-economic effects are still evolving, that they strongly reflect different cultures, that they can make use of new techniques of investigation such as the analysis of satellite images, and that there is presently no widely accepted body of doctrine in this domain.
