Transport and Governance: Co-Decision and Power Sharing

It is known from experience that some transport policy problems are very hard to solve. Among these, some of the most commonly mentioned are related to infrastructure, such as location of some key element (which in some cases is highly disputed and in some others strongly rejected), or defining financing solutions for some expensive pieces. But that is not the only area of great difficulty, as a whole area of perhaps even greater difficulty is that related to curtailment of environmental aggression and of congestion by road traffic, be it private cars or heavy goods vehicles. In this area, all solutions that might include measures to change behaviors and manage demand are normally prone to great resistance.
