Policy issue: Ensure balanced accessibility of regions and markets by different modes of transport
Access to European markets (i.e. to population, job opportunities etc.) varies significantly among the EU regions - as does GDP - and is highest in north-western Europe. Studies on the link between the transport infrastructure and services and regional development are inconclusive as regards the extent to which transport infrastructure actually leads to growth in economic welfare and strengthens cohesion among regions.
