Worldwide Situation of Road Pricing and Assessment of Its Impacts

The aim of this study – by PIARC’s Technical Committee A.3 on Road System Economics and Social Development – is to deepen the understanding of road pricing effects and the approaches for their assessment. Pricing schemes considered in this analysis include those for which the primary goal is to finance the construction and/or maintenance of road networks, as well as pricing schemes (also) used as traffic-management and/or environmental-protection tool. Single road (even bridge or tunnel) as well as region – or nation-wide charging schemes have been considered, as well as urban and interurban road-user charging schemes.
