Abstract

For the last two decades, the increasing economic integration of Europe has spurred freight traffic across the Alps. This negatively affects natural and living conditions along the main transit routes that follow alpine valleys and has reached the limits of bearing capacity. How can solutions be found which both comply with European claims for free international movements of goods and relieve the burden inflicted on the local population? This article depicts major developments with regard to trans-alpine traffic indicating unfavourable modal split tendencies. The examples of Austria and Switzerland illustrate how different countries have taken up the challenge, aiming at reducing road transport and foster train shippings. - (IfL)
