Number of the month

The share of investment in roads among total inland transport infrastructure investment dropped by 38 percentage points in Slovenia between 2008 and 2019, suggesting a continuous shift of infrastructure investment from road to rail. This is the biggest change among ITF countries, before France, which recorded a 28 percentage point fall. Get the latest transport investment infrastructure data

Decongesting our cities

Our latest report reviews the congestion management measures available to policy makers, focusing on technologies like sensors, wireless systems, traffic light optimisation and trip planning data. We take an in-depth look at how HOT lanes can be used to control congestion and their effectiveness relative to other initiatives. Get the report and sign-up for the "Ask the Author" session

Results for decarbonisation in Latin American cities

ITF presented the impacts of different policy scenarios on transport demand and CO2 emissions for Bogotá, Buenos Aires and Mexico City during the final event series of the Decarbonising Transport in Latin American Cities (DTLA) project. The scenarios help city policy makers to achieve their CO2 reduction ambitions for the transport sector and were defined and assessed in co-operation with the cities.
