ROAD TRAFFIC AND REGIONAL ECONOMIC STRENGTH

STRASSENVERKEHR UND REGIONALE WIRTSCHAFTSKRAFT

THE AIM OF THE STUDY IS TO DERIVE A METHOD SUITABLE FOR FORMING OBJECTIVE DECISION AIDS FOR ALLOCATING ROAD CONSTRUCTION MEANS AND FOR EVALUATING THE ECONOMICALLY JUSTIFIED USE OF MONEY FOR ROAD CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS. FOR THIS PURPOSE THE FACTORS WHICH DETERMINE TRAFFIC VOLUME AND THEIR INTERRELATIONSHIPS SUCH AS SPATIAL SEPARATION OF HOME AND PLACE OF WORK, CHANGING PER-HEAD INCOME, INCREASE OF LEISURE TIME ETC. HAVE TO BE DETERMINED AND ASSESSED, TO THAT THE INFRASTRUCTURE INVESTMENTS IN THE ROAD CONSTRUCTION SECTOR AND THE GROSS NATIONAL PRODUCT CAN BE SIMULATED WITH SUFFICIENT ACCURACY. A PILOT STUDY TESTED THE HYPOTHESIS THAT THE EFFECT OF INFRASTRUCTURE INVESTMENTS CAN BE DETERMINED BY CORRELATION OF INCOME FROM COMMUNITY TAXES AND TRAFFIC VOLUME.
