Mega Transport Projects and Success
The VREF release today its first Research Brief as short-form summaries of research findings in topics of relevance to the VREF Future Urban Transport Program.
The form for VREF Research Briefs is a 2-pager text with some illustrations, representing and summarizing state-of-the-art and/or latest new research findings. VREF Research Briefs will be written in a “popular science” style, with well-informed policy makers, practitioners and researchers as the target audience.
We intend to publish 5-10 VREF Research Briefs per year here at www.vref.se, and some of them will also be printed and disseminated at events.

Abstract: Across the globe, Mega Transport Projects have aroused controversy about their ability to deliver the infrastructure, services and associated developments they promise. This Research Brief presents key lessons and insights derived from a synthesis of findings from 30 international MTP case studies in ten countries.
The Volvo Research and Educational Foundations (VREF) inspires, initiates and supports research and educational activities through the Future Urban Transport Programme - How to deal with the complexity of urban transport (FUT).
Our Vision: Sustainable transport for equitable access in urban areas
