THE SWISS ROAD AND RAIL ACCOUNTS - BASIS OF TRANSPORT POLICY DECISIONS

DIE SCHWEIZERISCHEN STRASSEN- UND EISENBAHNRECHNUNGEN - GRUNDLAGEN FUER VERKEHRSPOLITISCHE ENTSCHEIDUNGEN

Within the framework of activities carried out in relation to overall Swiss transport policies special importance is given to the highways account, maintained since 1959, and rail account, established by a working party within the general transport commission. Both accounts are introduced and their methods are described. The economic viability of the highway account increased until 1961 and since then a decreasing tendency has been observed and as a result the capital account finished in 1974 in a negative situation for the first time (95% viability grading). The category accounts show, according to the capital account referred to, that middle and large size motor cars are economically viable, as are delivery vans. All other vehicle categories are not viable. Also the railway account is heavily in deficit, when seen from the economic view.
