This webinar featured Dr Francesca Pagliara of the Polytechnic School of the Basic Sciences at the University of Naples Federico II in Italy. Dr Pagliara discussed her work on the wider socioeconomic impacts of high-speed rail (HSR) on mobility choices, mega cities, temporary offices, land prices, and equity issues. Drawing upon her experience in residential and employment location choice modelling, she shared insights about land use and transport interactions for inter-regional accessibility enhancements achieved through HSR development.
