Heathrow The Airports Commission was set up by the Government of the United Kingdom in 2012 to take an independent look at the UK s future airport capacity needs It has been tasked with setting out the nature scale and timing of steps needed to maintain the UK s status as an international hub for aviation alongside recommendations for making better use of the UK s existing runway capacity by the end of 2013 and setting out recommendations on how to meet any need for additional airport capacity in the longer term by the summer of 2015 In December 2013 the Commission published its Interim Report which included a shortlist of three options for increasing the UK s aviation capacity in the long term two at Heathrow and one at Gatwick To determine which alternative would provide the largest benefits to passengers freight businesses and the UK economy overall it is important to understand how airlines are likely to respond to increased runway capacity This report summarises a quantitative analysis of the likely responses from airlines in all segments of the market building on a companion report that identifies the main drivers of airline behaviour and considers the possible influence of changes to existing business models and the introduction of new types of aircraft such as the Boeing Dreamliner and Airbus A350 Four sets of airline responses are modelled two following expansion of Gatwick and two following expansion of Heathrow to test outcomes under a range of scenarios for the overall development of the global aviation market The analysis quantifies impacts on connectivity and potential benefits to the consumer through airline competition and relieving congestion at airports and reducing the associated economic rents This report is part of the

Grand Paris Express A well executed economic appraisal can demonstrate to the decision maker whether investment in a project represents a good use of resources and inform the decision to approve the scheme postpone it or reject it But the micro economic partial equilibrium foundations of cost benefit analysis are challenged by projects such as the Grand Paris Express a scheme which is intended to transform the level of economic development in the area it will serve There are multiple challenges for modelling forecasting and appraisal These include definition of the counterfactual do nothing or do something else case and representation of the economic system in which population employment and income is contingent upon whether or not the scheme is undertaken Crucially the practical implications of concepts such as the economic benefits of agglomeration have to be unravelled to predict the behaviour of the sectors whose responses to changes in accessibility are key determinants of the outcome of investment in the project The aim of this report is to review the conduct of appraisal in these challenging conditions This report is part of the International Transport Forum s

has seen a transformation of its freight railway in the last fifteen years from a declining operation increasingly dependent on large government subsidies to a very productive and technologically improved system that operates profitably without public subsidy The country s rail system is now a key driver in the cross border integration of the manufacturing sector that has developed under the North American Free Trade Agreement and the productivity benefits this generates for the region The performance of the Mexican rail system is therefore of strategic importance not only to Mexico but to North America as a whole Effective competition within railways and with other modes of transport has a strong positive influence on cost efficiency tariffs and rail service quality At the same time the nature of railway cost structures suggest that unconstrained head to head competition between operators on the same tracks can lead to some loss of operational economies of scale and scope This study reviews the performance of Mexico s freight railways and the strengths and weaknesses of the current framework for competition in rail freight It examines the commercial and public policy objectives for the sector and the performance of the national industry over time It also benchmarks performance against railways in other countries with a similar market potential for rail transport

Expanding Airport Capacity in Large Urban Areas Roundtable Report 153 Expanding airport capacity in large metropolitan areas is difficult Community agreements on noise constrain growth at existing airports Land prices can be prohibitive for relocating airports Most new sites require extensive investment in surface transport links to city centres In multi airport regions options for expansion at the airports are to an extent interdependent complicating assessment of whether to build new runways Many major airports are hubs for network carriers at the same time as serving a large local market The complementarity between these functions may be a prerequisite for viable network operations suggesting that distributing services over multiple airports instead of expanding the main hub would be costly Hub airports and their network carriers often compete with hubs in neighbouring regions The strategies of network carriers and potential new entrants to this part of the market need to be taken into account in assessing future demand for airport capacity The requirements of low cost and other point to point carriers are equally important but different This report reviews international experience in reconciling planning and environmental constraints with demand for airport capacity and the potential benefits in terms of productivity and growth from developing international airline services Experience is compared in London New York Tokyo Osaka Sydney and in Germany s main airports with particular attention to the dynamics of airline markets and implications for airport planning

economic conditions alone Socio demographic factors including population ageing and changing patterns of education working and household composition matter Rising urbanisation and less car oriented policies in some cities also reduce the growth of car use perhaps combined with changing attitudes towards mobility Some groups choose to use cars less others are forced to This report summarises insights into the drivers of change in car use It shows that explanations are place specific and that projections of future car use are increasingly uncertain The task for policy makers is to identify mobility strategies that are robust under an increasingly wide range of plausible scenarios Go to summary and conclusions publication Other languages 160 pages OECD ITF Paris January 2014 45 63 40 5

transport PPP projects have delivered major cost savings but many more have exceeded their budgets PPPs are prone to overestimating revenues and when projects run into financial difficulty risks have a tendency to revert to the taxpayer The report examines the nature of risks and uncertainty associated with different types of PPP project and the practical consequences of transferring risks to private partners It assesses the fiscal impact of PPPs and discusses budget procedures and accounting rules to limit the public liabilities they can create The report also reviews the relative merits

a selection of International Transport Forum countries It was jointly developed along with the International Association of Public Transport UITP Providing public transport services comes at a cost and the compendium reviews how a selection of urban areas meet t his financing challenge What is clear is that no single financing model emerges reflecting the great diversity of local situations and needs It also appears that there is no silver bullet for the funding of public transport and that combining funding from different sources increases the resilience of the system These urban areas do

Sharing Road Safety Developing an International Framework for Crash Modification Functions Almost 1 3 million people die in road crashes every year and between 20 and 50 million are injured Road traffic injuries are the leading cause of death among young people between 15 and 29 years of age Road crashes cost countries between 1 and 3 per cent of their GDP In the face of these facts the need for effective road safety policies is undeniable Governments can more effectively improve road safety by making better use of indicators that reliably quantify the reduction of crashes due to interventions in the road traffic system According to the study lack of quantifiable evidence about the effects of countermeasures such as roadway signage pedestrian crossing treatments roadway geometric features etc on road crashes is a key obstacle to the advancement of many critical life saving road safety initiatives Through the use of indicators so called Crash Modification Functions CMF that provide measures of how interventions affect the number and gravity of road crashes governments can reduce the risk of taking decisions that have little or no impact on improving road safety

Transport Outlook indicate that global passenger transport volumes in 2050 could be up to 2 5 times as large as in 2010 and freight volumes could grow by a factor of four Emissions of CO2 grow more slowly because of increasing energy efficiency but may nevertheless more than double The projected evolution of mobility depends on income and population growth and on urbanization The relation between framework conditions and mobility is uncertain and not immutable and the Transport Outlook examines a number of plausible policy scenarios including the potential effects of prices and mobility policies that are less car oriented in urban settings Low car ownership with increased two wheeler use and somewhat lower overall mobility results in much lower emissions of CO2 Mobility policies can slow down CO2 emission growth but cannot by themselves stop it energy technology is the key to actually reducing the transport sector s global carbon footprint 61 pages ITF Paris May 2012
