Project Number: 404

Project Leader: Gunnar Isacsson

Start Date: 2014-12-01

End Date: 2015-06-30

Research Question Economics in the transport sector addresses two main issues; the welfare maximising choice of investment projects and the welfare maximising level of user charges. This project addresses one particular dimension of the second challenge, namely the marginal costs of road accidents. This marginal cost is one component of the optimal user charge.
