Abstract

This book addresses the role of railways in urban development. Our central aim is to inquire into how the renaissance of railways since the end of the 20th century (especially the development of high-speed rail and light rail links) will affect European cities. The analyses are carried out with special attention given to the broader institutional environment of the railway system, including the shift toward privatised railway companies, internationalisation, the occurrence of market and government failures in land markets, and private-public partnerships in the development of railway station areas.
