The mega-cities within the so-called constructing countries are dealing with a dramatic bring up in site visitors degrees. Gridlock looms at the horizon. should still traffic-choked streets turn into an everlasting and day-by-day prevalence, fiscal improvement might be held in fee and pollutants will spiral.

C) Employment effects due to location advantages and increased growth. The employment effects due to increased growth prevail after the investment phase. In the economic literature these effects are discussed intensively and with opposing opinions (Lutter, 1981; Aberle, 1981; European Commission, 1997b; SACTRA, 1998; Zachcial, 1998). The discussion about the importance of infrastructure capital for economic growth was revived at the end of the 1980s by the so-called public-capital 54 hypothesis.

Clearly, it will be difficult to identify the most plausible image for China. In any case, such a future image can be used as a communication vehicle 26 for testing the robustness of policies and as a learning device for enhancing the flexibility of strategic policies.
On the basis of the master equation approach (Weidlich and Haag, 1983) the probability of finding a certain trip distribution taking into account the links and feedback's between the decision processes involved, can be calculated. The most probable trip distribution is then related to empirical trip matrices, in order to estimate the parameters of the ITEM-transport model. Intermodal as well as multimodal effects may be incorporated within a wide range of mathematical functions. e. the evolution with time is represented.
