Project

Decision making and coordination of transport policies at the local level.

The purpose of this project is to study the role of local governments (cities and municipalities) in controlling transport externalities (congestion, pollution, noise, accident risks). The instruments local governments can potentially use may include investing in capacityreduction, imposing local speed limits, tolls, traffic lights, increasing the red phase of traffic lights, road bumps, investing in bypass capacity around the city or municipality, building noise walls, implementing low emission zones, etc.
