Transport and Spatial Distribution of Activities
European Conference of Ministers of Transport, 1991 - Channel Tunnel (England and France) - 143 pages
Experience has shown that there is a very close relationship between the geographical distribution of activities and the location of transport infrastructures, a relationship that is becoming evident again today as high-speed railway lines are built or enter the planning stage. This report seeks to determine what influence these lines will have on the regions served, particularly in the light of experience with the TGV Sud-Est in France.
