The Socio-Economic Benefits of Roads in Europe was produced by the International Road Federation (IRF) Research Council in 2007 and offers an informative insight into roads as a key sector of the European economy. This study demonstrates the tremendous economic impact of roads and road transport-related sectors on the European economy. It encompasses relevant statistics and reports on who uses the roads and why, the social and economic impact of roads and road transport, and the current demand for improved infrastructure and sustainable development on the continent’s road networks.
