Abstract

Basically three approaches can be distinguished in the literature on the economic impact of transport infrastructure. The first approach is the well-known social cost benefit analysis (CBA) with consumer surplus as the main object (see section 3.6). This approach is firmly based on efficiency objectives in welfare economics and has been widely used in various countries.
