The recording and assessment of the effects of new transport infrastructures is a central element in spatial planning and at the infrastructure project phase. However, in Switzerland to date, forecast effects have only rarely been compared with the actual spatial impact of infrastructure schemes (ex-post analysis).
The «Spatial impact of transport infrastructures» project, initiated by the ARE and carried out in collaboration with the federal agencies concerned (FOT, FOCA, FEDRO and SAEFL) and interested cantons, is intended to help close this gap.
