Planning and financing transportation infrastructures in the EU

A best practice study

A modern, high-performance transportation infrastructure in line with actual demand is an essential prerequisite for economic competitiveness, growth, and prosperity.

Therefore, Roland Berger proposes solutions for this problem drawn from examples of best practice in neighbouring European countries with comparable structures and general conditions.
