The latest data up to 2013 shows that continued economic crisis has had an impact on transport infrastructure investment:
► Investment in inland transport infrastructure, as a share of GDP, has declined from a peak in 2009 to a record low (0.8%) in the OECD while the volume of investment has fallen back to 1995 levels.
► Investment levels in Central and Eastern European countries have nearly halved since 2009 in real terms, accounting for 1% of GDP in 2013 (compared with 1.9% in 2009).
► Western European and North American economies invest increasingly in rail while in Central and Eastern European countries the focus continues to be on roads.
