The UK Department for Transport has published a literature review of research on Transport and City Competitiveness. According to this report, "improved city competitiveness is a much sought after property of most economies, [but] there remains little agreement either on what the term competitiveness means or on how policy intervention should try to enhance it." This report investigates issues such as "Does investment in transport have a significant impact on urban development? And, if so, by how much?" and "Why is there more impact reported for some schemes than others, e.g. development around some LRT stations, and in some cities, than others?"[Editor's note: this page contains links to the individual sections of the report.
