One of the key regional policy issues in Norway is how to counteract the ongoing process of urbanisation. Investments in transport infrastructure have played an important part in these efforts. However, it is not always clear whether these investments achieve their intended aims or whether they offer value for money. In this presentation I will present some of the issues along with some of the work which I have done in this area. In particular, I will discuss some of the modelling issues encountered when working in a Norwegian context.
