The assessment, a biennial e-book, is established into 3 major components. half I describes the surroundings during which the delivery area is constructing and the significant demanding situations that this atmosphere poses to governments, the delivery and society at huge. half II specializes in tracing the numerous improvement of roads, railways, transport, ports, inland waterways and air delivery industries and infrastructure within the sector.

We used the following idea for our classification. ) or huge agglomerations (Greater Manchester, Ruhrgebiet) based on population density and the total number of inhabitants. After this we made a classification for big towns (Marseilles, Frankfurt, Zurich) or smaller agglomerations (Rhône-area with Lyon) based on density, total inhabitants and distance to the next metropolitan area. Then we tried to identify suburban areas around these two classifications (Agglomeration Haarlem, Oberhausen, Halle-Vilvoorde) based on density, total inhabitants and distance to the next agglomeration.

The Figures 1 and 2 show the classification for NUTS3 zones of Europe. ). This classification of area types, using NUTS3 population density, but also population size and proximity to large centres, was chosen for the EXPEDITE meta-model for passenger transport. The meta-model itself operates at the NUTS2 level. For application in the metamodel, the percentage of the population of the NUTS2 zone in each of the seven area types at the NUTS3 level was calculated. 000 and DENSITY >= 200)) • Area Type 4 (light blue): Very densely populated area next to densely populated area DENSITY >= 200 and distance to area of type 1 < 20 km • Area Type 5 (violet): medium population density area DENSITY >= 150 • Area Type 6 (green): low population density area DENSITY >= 50 • Area Type 7 (yellow): Very low population density area DENSITY > 0.
