The services that enhance the functioning of the economic and social systems of a geographical area draw their efficiency and quality from the existence of specific infrastructure networks, which are normally interconnected at international level and which often serve each other reciprocally. There are innumerable technological, technical and operational questions which regard the development of networks, but the aspects examined here concern technical and economic assessments of transport infrastructures. This is because local areas require increasingly greater accessibility for persons and goods, but also because existing infrastructures are often inadequately exploited and to duplicate them is generally extremely costly, in economic and environmental terms. After a brief review of the more important theoretical approaches to judging the role of infrastructure networks in local economies, this introductory essay presents seven papers by experts, organised on the basis of their academic nature and assessment aims.

Keywords: Transport infrastructures; spatial planning; economic evaluation
