Handling limited resources efficiently is a challenge which often goes beyond the capabilities of the private sector. This is especially true for the planning of transport infrastructure. Improvement in this field requires the coordination of a variety of stakeholders. In addition to national and regional authorities, European institutions play an increasing role.
An impartial approach which is not limited to the horizon of a single company enables long-term perspectives for the development of the transport sector. This can help to raise public awareness of transport issues and to provide elected officials with a basis for decisions on future investments and legislation.
