Frantz Daniel Fistung, Oana Bianca Fistung, Teodor Popescu


The scope of this work is to analyze the influence of transport infrastructure, on regional development. Moreover, it aims to illustrate the major influences of the economic, social and ecological factors on transport infrastructure development. In that respect, starting by analyzing the current views on national and international levels regarding these items, the work propose to go further, by supplement these theories with some new elements, requested by the current and future society’s evolution. Thus, for the analysis of the relationships between transport infrastructure and the regional development, we propose a new scenario, based on the sustainable development principles. This approach, again, is given in the paper, through research investigations carried out, both, in terms of theory and practice, using actual Development Regions of Romania data. Finally, the work findings highlight several solutions that could be included in the further socio-economic-ecological development strategies of The Romanian Development Regions, according with the sustainable transportation concept. The work is useful for the academic specialists and decision-makers, offering an extended support for regional and infrastructural policies.
