The Effects of the Planned High-Speed Rail System on Travel Times and Spatial Development in the European Alps
One of the direct effects of introducing high-speed railway lines is a significant reduction in travel times between major cities. This is particularly relevant in mountain areas. It not only makes cities more easily ...
The impacts of climate change on tourist mobility in mountain areas
This study investigates the effects of climate change on tourist mobility in mountain areas, distinguishing between infrastructure, transport operation and travel demand. We examine change in tourist travel demand by ...
Policy implications from the economic valuation of freight transport externalities along the Brenner corridor
Due to the morphology and the presence of high slope, the transalpine infrastructures generate relevant external costs that affect local populations and cannot be ignored. Their inclusion into transport policies and mobility ...
Options for reducing external costs from freight transport along the Brenner corridor
The Brenner is the most heavily travelled transalpine corridor in terms of freight transport. The current modal split tends heavily towards road (71% road – 29% rail), with significant repercussions in terms of environmental and ...
Micro and Macro Modelling Approaches for the Evaluation of the Carbon Impacts from Transportation
To quantify CO2 emissions from road transport, literature suggests the adoption of several alternative methods, based on transport modelling and carbon modules. Some of these methods are labelled as a micro approach and ...
Policy Strategies for the Mitigation of GHG Emissions caused by the Mass-Tourism Mobility in Coastal Areas
Several studies on the relationship between tourism transport and CO2 emissions have shown that the transport sector generates the largest proportion of emissions, accounting for 75% of overall emissions. These studies ...
