Do Road Projects Benefit Industry? A Case Study of the Humber bridge

Firms using the Humber bridge regularly for goods transport were able to benefit in a number of ways, and in this case it is appropriate to value savings in drivers' time by the wage rate. But this conclusion may not be applicable to the more usual case of smaller incremental road improvements.

Economies of Scale in Bus transport: I. Some British Municipal Results

This study was prompted by the proposal to merge a number of municipal transport undertakings into Passenger transport Authorities. The authors analyse figures showing various working expenses per bus-mile, and find no evidence of scale economies. They point out, however, that the P.T.A.s will be larger than any undertaking in their sample, and that a different conclusion might conceivably be reached if data were available on costs per passenger-mile. Extension of one-man operation appears to offer greater scope for economies than amalgamation.
