The Industry Perspective — Examples of Secondary Effects
Most analysts who look at the future development of travel predict a steady increase in the frequency of travel over at least the coming decade. Since vehicles are steadily improving in terms of speed and comfort, we can see how plans for new infrastructure investments are developed further year by year. New high-speed train connections are planned, the most advanced of which require completely new tracks for the trains to run smoothly and safely at high speed. In the same manner, new airline routes turn up all the time as regional airlines with smaller planes find that the frequency of travel between two regional centres is high enough for a route to become economically viable. In the car industry, we see how companies develop new types of car with lower emission rates that need less fuel.
