The project developed an innovative cost-benefit/multicriterial decision analysis methodoligy and a database of cost models of the transport system. It developed a methodology for a measurement and valuation of socio-economic development effects and privides values. It developed indicators of regional accessibility and social cohesion and an operational integrated model of transport and regional development. A comrehensive and transferable methodology was established. Not surprisingly, the analyses results in a rather low correlation beween accessibility and GDP per capita reflecting the well-known fact that location is only one factor of regional economic development
