Will self-driving cars impact the long-term investment strategy for the Dutch national trunk road system?
van Mourik, H.
The Netherlands have a long history of strategic planning for the national infrastructure. The current National Infrastructure Fund1 has budgets for a total amount of 81 Billion Euro’s allocated for large national investments (both maintenance and new projects) up to 2030. The policy document “structuurvisie infrastructuur en Ruimte” sets out the policy framework that defines the spatial economic, water, mobility and sustainability / viability projects for the Netherlands towards 2040 and sets the focus on government investment. In March 2017 elections were held in the Netherlands, and after that a coalition is being formed. In order to prepare the necessary information for the coalition negotiations on the challenges the Netherlands face w.r.t. the long term investments in infrastructure, a comprehensive strategic study was executed called ‘the national market and capacity analysis’ (NMCA)2 . This study investigated wat challenges remain after implementing the projects that are defined in the current national infrastructure fund until 2030.
